Cs2CO3-promoted methylene insertion into disulfide bonds using acetone as a methylene source

Author affiliations

Abstract

An efficient halogen-free Cs2CO3-promoted methylene insertion into disulfide bonds has been achieved using acetone as a methylene source under mild conditions. This method provides a convenient and practical route to dithioacetals in up to 96% yield with good functional group compatibility.
