Synthesis, Structure, And Thermolysis Of Tris(dimethylphenylsilyl)methyl Sulfenyl Chloride
Published 2017 · Chemistry
Sulfenyl chlorides, i.e., di-coordinated sulfur(II) chlorides are useful precursors for a variety of organic sulfur compounds. Herein, the synthesis, structure, and reactivity of a sulfenyl chloride that bears a bulky tris(dimethylphenylsilyl)methyl group on the sulfur atom are reported. The thermolysis of this sulfenyl chloride resulted in the generation of the corresponding bissilylthioketone via the 1,2-elimination of chlorodimethylphenylsilane.
