A catalyst-free method for the synthesis of 1,4,2-dithiazoles from isothiocyanates and hydroxylamine triflic acid salts†
A catalyst-free method for the preparation of 1,4,2-dithiazoles is developed by reactions of isothiocyanates with hydroxylamine triflic acid salts. This reaction achieves C–S, C–N, and S–N bond formation, and a range of products are obtained in moderate to good yields. The obvious feature is using shelf-stable hydroxylamine triflic acid salts as a N source to synthesize heterocycles under mild conditions.
