Reappraising the formation of Jaffé's Base: studies of the treatment of imidazolidine-2-thione with mild oxidising agents.


Throughout reports detailing the preparation of Jaffé's Base, which date as far back as 1894, its identity and the nature of an intermediate prior to its formation have been constant points of conjecture. This report presents firm evidence that the oxidation of imidazolidine-2-thione, SCN(H)C2H4N(H), with potassium triiodide yields the 'thiol' condensation… (More)
