Copper-mediated trifluoromethylthiolation of α-diazoesters.


PMID 24660960

Abstract

A novel Cu-mediated trifluoromethylthiolation of diazo compounds has been developed that provides a convenient synthetic route for the efficient α-trifluoromethylthiolation of simple esters under mild reaction conditions. The reaction is typically carried out at room temperature, and water could be used to promote the reaction.
