Direct conversion of β, β’-dihydroxythioethers into thiols: Synthesis of new tridentate ligands

Written by sctunisie no comments

Various β, β’-dihydroxythioethers, derived from oxirane were readily converted to their corresponding new mono-substituted thioethers dithiols in good yields, by treatment with thiourea and hydrochloric acid in aqueous solution. The method is applicable to aliphatic and functional diols as well as primary and secondary alcohols.
