A conjugate Lewis base-Brønsted acid catalyst for the sulfenylation of nitrogen containing heterocycles under mild conditions

Abstract

Catalysts that contain a thiourea tethered to a carboxylic acid were found to affect the sulfenylation of indoles and other N-heterocycles on the hour time scale at room temperature. The mild nature of these conditions allowed for the incorporation of diverse functionalities into more complex heterocycles.
