Synthesis and reactions of a new cyclobutanethione derivative


Mloston, Grzegorz; Majchrzak, Agnieszka; Rutkowska, Marzena; Woznicka, Marta; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (2005). Synthesis and reactions of a new cyclobutanethione derivative. Helvetica Chimica Acta, 88(10):2624-2636.

Abstract

The 3,3-dichloro-2,2,4,4-tetramethylcyclobutanethione (4b) was prepared from the parent diketone by successive reaction with PCl5 and Lawesson reagent in pyridine. This new thioketone 4b was transformed into 1-chlorocyclobutanesulfanyl chloride 5 and chloro 1-chlorocyclobutyl disulfide 9 by treatment with PCl5 and SCl2, respectively, in chlorinated solvents (Schemes 1 and 2). These products reacted with S- and P-nucleophiles by substitution of Cl− at the S-atom; e.g., the reaction with 4b yielded the di- and trisulfides 6b and 11, respectively. Surprisingly, only pentasulfide 12 was formed in the reaction of 9 with thiobenzophenone (Scheme 3). In contrast to 5 and 9, the corresponding chloro 1-chlorocyclobutyl trisulfide 13 could not be detected, but reacted immediately with the starting thioketone 4b to give the tetrasulfide 14 (Scheme 4). Oxidation of 4b with 3-chloroperbenzoic acid (mCPBA) yielded the corresponding thione oxides (= sulfine) 15, which underwent 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions with thioketones 3a and 4b (Scheme 5). Furthermore, 4b was shown to be a good dipolarophile in reactions with thiocarbonylium methanides (Scheme 6) and iminium ylides (= azomethine ylides; Scheme 7). In the case of phenyl azide, the reaction with 4b gave the symmetrical trithiolane 25 (Scheme 8).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
