Abstract

The trichloromethylsulfonyl-, dichloromethylsulfonyl-, chlorosulfonyl-, and fluorosulfonyl esters of a neopentyl-type alcohol have been prepared via sulfonylation or sulfinylation followed by oxidation. The preparative usefulness and potential of the transformations are discussed.
Keywords: Alkylation reagents; SN2 substitution reactions; steric hindrance; sulfonic esters; sulfur-oxygen bond cleavage. Alkylation reagents; SN2 substitution reactions; steric hindrance; sulfonic esters; sulfur-oxygen bond cleavage.
