Abstract: It was found that cesium carbonate has a unique catalytic ability on the reaction of carbonyl compounds with diphenyl diselenide to give the corresponding α-phenylseleno carbonyl compounds in moderate to good yields. Similarly, the α-phenylthiolation of carbonyl compounds with diphenyl disulfide was promoted by the cesium carbonate catalyst.
Keywords: cesium carbonate; α-phenylchalcogenation; carbonyl compounds; diphenyl dichalcogenide
