Leuckart Thiophenol Reaction

The Leuckart Thiophenol Reaction allows the preparation of thiophenols and corresponding thioethers from anilines or their corresponding diazonium salts. The first step is the reaction of an aryl diazonium salt with a potassium alkyl xanthate to give an aryl xanthate, which affords an aryl mercaptan upon basic hydrolysis or an aryl thioether upon warming.
