Abstract

A method for the preparation of alkyl aryl sulfides from alcohols and 2-sulfanylbenzothiazole by a new type of oxidation-reduction condensation using phenyl diphenylphosphinite and 2.6-dimethoxy-1,4-benzoquinone is described. In this reaction, the chiral alcohols are converted into the corresponding chiral sulfides with almost complete inversion of configurations under mild and neutral conditions.
