Brief Communications


N-(2- and 4-Nitrophenylthio)morpholines in the presence of equimolar amounts of picric acid enter into the reaction of electrophilic sulfenylation of the C=C norbornene bond to give bi- and tricyclic sulfides. With cyclohexene,trans-2-arylthiocyclohexanol are formed.

Key words
