Abstract:The sulfonamide moiety is present among a variety of biologically significant compounds. A facile synthesis is necessary to produce a variety of sulfonamides with the potential to improve human health. Herein, we report a facile methodology for the synthesis of 4-methylbenzenesulfonamides, amenable to a broad range of nitrogen nucleophiles. Implementing a semi-miscible biphasic solvent system resulted in higher yields, decreased reaction times, and a simplified workup over preliminary methods. Additionally, th… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
