Abstract : Trichloromethane sulfenyl chloride (I) reacts with 1,2epoxides and with meso-butadiene dioxide to form betachloroalkyl trichloromethane sulfenates. The reaction is catalyzed by t-amines and identical products are obtained by substituting appropriate beta-chloro alcohols for the epoxides. The results agree with the mechanism which postulates trans opening of the epoxide rings, as previously suggested for the similar reactions of 2,4-dinitrobenzene sulfenyl chloride. The new products from reaction of I with epoxides and certain alcohols are reported. (Author)
