Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) The nucleophilic substitution of benzylic carbonates with sodium arenesulfinates was catalyzed by the palladium complex generated in situ from [Pd(η3-C3H5)Cl] 2 and DPEphos [bis(2-diphenylphosphinophenyl)ether]. The catalytic reaction proceeded in DMSO at 80°C and gave a variety of benzylic sulfones in high yields.
