Aqueous Synthesis of Peptide Thioesters from Amino ..
Methodologies recently developed along these lines include synthesis of amines using nitrobenzenesulfonyl groups, indole synthesis by radical cyclization of o-alkenylphenylisocyanides or o-alkenythioanilides, and transformation of thiol esters to aldehydes or ketones.
The Synthesis of Thiol Esters with Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide
Thiol, selenol, and tellurol esters were prepared by the reaction of bis(organochalcogeno)mercurials with acid chlorides in chloroform or carbon tetrachloride and in the presence of tetrabutylammonium halides as catalysts.
Triethylphosphite plays a key role as a supporting ligand by mitigating an undesired palladium-catalyzed decarbonylation-β-elimination of the α-amino thiol esters.
