Sulfur ylides generated from the reaction of arylchlorocarbenes with trimethylenesulide
determination of rate parameters by laser flash photolysis
Romashin, Y. N.Liu, Michael T. H.Bonneau, R.
Reaction of arylchlorodiazirines with trimethylenesulfide gives a mixture of aryldi(3-chloropropyl)thioacetal and aryl(2-propenyl)(3-chloropropyl)thioacetal in a good yield. The reaction goes through a formation of a sulfur ylide as an intermediate. Rate constants have been determined using laser flash photolytic techniques. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
