Superbasic system CsOH/DMSO as a reagent for a fast one-step synthesis of symmetrical dialkyl trithiocarbonates
1  Department of Chemistry , Faculty of Sciences, Shahid Rajaee Teacher training University,


Symmetrical dialkyl trithiocarbonates were readily synthesized in excellent yields by one-step reaction
of carbon disulfide and various alkyl halides under mild reaction conditions in the presence of
cesium hydroxide as a super basic system. This method provides a synthesis of symmetrical dialkyl
trithiocarbonates in short reaction times without the use of highly toxic starting materials.

other hydroxides
thank you for a nice contribution.
I was just wondering if other hydroxides (especially KOH) would work in this reaction. Have you tried that?
