The combination of potassium sulfide and chloroform provides an efficient and practical thiocarbonyl surrogate. A variety of dithiocarbamates can be synthesized in one-pot reactions in which the thiocarbonyl motif was generated in situ.

Our group is directing the current research, and Prof. Meyer-Almes helped us to detect the activity of the thiocarbonyl compounds.
