Abstract

This report discusses research involving the reactions of a 2-arylprop-1-en-3-yltrimethylammonium iodides with sulfur nucleophiles and the useful synthetic applications of the adducts formed. The present work may be subdivided into four sections: 1) reactions of several 2-arylprop-1-en-3-yltrimethylammonium iodides with benzenethiol; 2) reactions of several 2-arylprop-1-en-3-yltrimethylammonium iodides with the sodium salt of benzenesulfinic acid; 3) reactions of several 2-arylprop-1-en-3-yltrimethylammonium iodided with 2-mercapto-1-methylimidazole; and 4)oxidation of 2-aryl-3-phenylthio-1-propenes and 2-aryl-3-phyenylsulfonyl-1-propenes using sodium perborate. This report outlines the experimental conditions and procedures responsible for the synthesis of these products; in addition, this report describes the physical properties, NMR and IR spectra of the compound synthesized, as well as offers a possible mechanism for their formation. The classes of compounds synthesized include 2-aryl-3-phenylthio-1-propenes; 2-aryl-3-phyenylsulfonyl-1-propenes; 3-(2-aryl-1-propenyl)2-(1-methyl-imidazoyl)thioethers; and 2-aryl-2-acetoxy-3-phenylslfonyl-1-propanols. Recommendations are listed to suggest future research in this area.
