Iron-Catalyzed Synthesis of Thioesters from Thiols and Aldehydes in Water

By Yu-Ting Huang, Shao-Yi Lu, Chih-Lun Yi and Chin-Fa Lee


The preparation of thioesters through the iron-catalyzed coupling reaction of thiols with aldehydes is described. The reactions were carried out by using tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as an oxidant and water as a solvent in most cases. This system is compatible with a variety of functional groups
