Synthesis of Sulfenamides

Recent Literature


The copper-catalyzed coupling of diaryl disulfides with alkyl amines affords various sulfenamides in good yields. Furthermore, both aryl groups of the disulfide reacted effectively.

N-Trifluoroacetyl arenesulfenamides are effective precursors for the synthesis of unsymmetrical disulfides and sulfenamides. Reactions of N-trifluoroacetyl arenesulfenamides with thiols and amines gave the desired products in high yields within short reaction times.
