Mild Ti-mediated transformation of t-butyl thio-ethers into thio-acetates

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a straightforward method for the rapid conversion of thio-ethers to thio-acetates using TiCl4, in good to excellent yields. The reaction conditions tolerate a variety of functional groups, including halide, nitro, ether, thiophene and acetylene functionalities. A catalytic variant of this reaction is also described.
