Abstract

The preparation of alkyl aryl Sulfides from alcohols and 2-sulfanylbenzothiazole using phenyl diphenylphosphinite and azide compounds by a new type of oxidation-reduction condensation is described. The chiral secondary and tertiary alcohols are converted into the corresponding chiral Sulfides with almost complete inversion of configurations under mild and neutral conditions.
