A Convenient "One-Pot" Synthesis of Unsymmetrical Sulfides
Hsi, Jeffrey D.

The purpose of this study was to incorporate the two-step mixed sulfide synthesis into a "one-pot" process. This procedure would then provide a superior method for obtaining mixed alkyl and aralkyl sulfides starting with readily accessible alkyl and aralkyl halides and commercially available 2-mercapto-1,3-benzoxazole. A second goal of this study was to investigate the feasibility of substituting primary and secondary alkyl tosylates in place of alkyl halides in the reaction.
