Isolation of the key intermediates in the catalyst-free conversion of oxiranes to thiiranes in water at ambient temperature.

Abstract

Herein we shed light on the mechanism of the reaction of epoxides with ammonium thiocyanate to give the corresponding thiiranes in water, and we present a computational mechanistic model for this highly useful reaction.
