Abstract

In the reaction of N-methylbenzenesulfenamide (1) with thioanisole (4) in the presence of trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), the initial rate υ0 of total appearance of 2- and 4-(methylthio)phenyl phenyl sulfides (5) is first and zero order with respect to the initial concentrations of 1 and 4, respectively: υ0=kobs[1]0. The pseudo-first order rate constant kobs is evaluated as 5.2×10-4 sec-1 with varying concentrations of 4 (0.72 to 5.0 M) in a mixture of 4 and CH2Cl2 in the presence of TFA at 10 °C. This data supports the notion that a phenylsulfenium ion intermediate 3 interacting with both the counter ion and the unshared electron-pair of amine is generated by heterolytic N-S scission of the protonated sulfenamide 2, leading to the observed formation of 5.
