    • Abstract

       

      An unprecedented metal-, halogen- and solvent-free, MSAA-promoted S-carbonylation of thiols with feedstock acids has been developed. This new transformation provides an efficient and atom-economic strategy for the synthesis of thioesters in a single operation from readily available and inexpensive starting materials. The reaction avoids the use of expensive and hazardous coupling reagents, bases and generates water as the only by-product, thus making this chemical synthetic process more viable, environment-friendly and contributing towards sustainable chemistry
