Abstract

The reactions of sterically crowded cycloalkanethiones of type 2 with CHCl3/NaOH under phase-transfer catalysis (PTC) with benzyl(triethyl)ammonium chloride (TEBA) as catalyst afforded the corresponding 'gem.- dichlorothiiranes' of type 3 in good yields (cf. Scheme 2 and Table). The desulfurization, which, in some cases, occurred spontaneously, led to (dichloromethylidene)cycloalkanes of type 4. Similar results were obtained using Seyferth's reagent in boiling benzene. In the case of 2,2,6,6-tetramethylcyclohexanethione, reaction under PTC conditions after 3 h yielded only the corresponding dichloromethylidene derivative; on the other hand, workup after 1 h gave (2,2,6,6-tetramethylcyclohexylidene)methanethione (thioketene 9; Scheme 5).
