Phase-Transfer Catalysis by Poly(ethylene glycol)s of β-Thioethyl Chloride Reactions
Neighboring sulfur participation is a facile process for β-thioethyl derivatives. In the present work we examine the ability of phase-transfer catalysis by poly(ethylene glycol)s to make direct substitution, elimination, and oxidation competitive with neighboring sulfur participation for reaction of mustard chlorohydrin (1).
