  1. 1.

    Tetrakisalkyl(aryl)sulfonylethenes (TSE) in neutral, acid, and especially basic media easily undergoes hydrolysis; this causes fragmentation of the molecule to form disulfonyl-methanes, CO2, and sulfonic acids.

  2. 2.

    By the reaction of TSE with alcohols, disulfonylacetate esters are obtained in high yield; they are probably the products of the hydrolysis of intermediate unstable acetals or diacetals of disulfonylketenes.

  3. 3.

    Depending on reaction conditions and reagent proportions, the reaction of TSE with thiols causes the replacement of one or two SO2R groups by SR groups.
