Abstract

We present herein a new catalyst-free and solvent-free approach for the synthesis of allylic thioethers directly from allylic alcohols and thiols. The methodology allows the synthesis of different allylic thioethers in good to excellent yields under microwave irradiation. Theoretical calculations for the allylic carbocation helped to explain the regioselectivity observed when nonsymmetric substrates are used in the reaction.
