Alkali metals absorbed into nanostructured silica (M-SG) were found to be useful solid-state reagents for the desulfonation of a range of N,N-disubstituted sulfonamides. M-SG reagents are room-temperature-stable free-flowing powders that retain the chemical reactivity of the parent metal, decreasing the danger and associated cost of using reactive metals.

A low-valent titanium generated in situ from Ti(O-i-Pr)4, Me3SiCl, and Mg powder in THF reacted with a broad range of sulfonamides in a reductive bond cleaving pathway to provide the corresponding amines, hydrocarbons and thiols. The reagent could also cleave sulfonates to the corresponding alcohols.

A convenient reductive photocleavage of sulfonamides using thioureas as organophotocatalysts tolerates a variety of substrates and occurs under mild reaction conditions in the presence of tetrabutylammonium borohydride as a reducing agent.
