Unsymmetrical thiourea, which on demand can generate isothiocyanate in the presence of FeCl3, can serve as a latent isothiocyanate functionality and circumvent the difficulties associated with the direct use of reactive isothiocyanate functionality. An unusual and unorthodox reactivity has been achieved during a one-pot reaction of an unsymmetrically di-substituted thiourea with an alcohol in the presence of FeCl3 leading to an expeditious synthesis of O-organyl arylthiocarbamates. In this… CONTINUE READING
