Hydroxylamine‐derived Reagent as a Dual Oxidant and Amino Group Donor for the Iron Catalyzed Preparation of Unprotected Sulfinamides from Thiols
- Journal Article
An iron catalyzed reaction for the selective transformation of thiols (‐SH) to sulfinamides (‐SONH 2 ) by a direct transfer of ‐ O and free ‐ NH 2 groups has been developed. The reaction operates under mild conditions using a bench stable hydroxylamine derived reagent, exhibits broad functional group tolerance, is scalable and proceeds without the use of any precious metal catalyst or additional oxidant. This novel, practical reaction leads to the formation of two distinct new bonds (S=O and S–N) in a single step to chemoselectively form valuable, unprotected sulfinamide products. Preliminary mechanistic studies implicate the role of the alcoholic solvent as an oxygen atom donor. Show more
