NHC-catalyzed thioesterification of aldehydes by external redox activation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The NHC-catalyzed thioesterification of aromatic or aliphatic aldehydes with a range of thiols was developed in the presence of a stoichiometric amount of an organic oxidant. Among the oxidants examined, phenazine was shown to give the best results in terms of chemical yield and compatibility with thiols.
