Original Paper

Abstract

A practical method to synthesize symmetric disulfides from alkyl halides has been developed. Using this procedure primary, secondary, benzylic and allylic disulfides were prepared by treating the corresponding alkyl halides with thiourea and HMDS in DMSO at 50 °C within 10–24 h in high yields.

Keywords
