Abstract

The Martin's sulfurane is a ketal analog of diarylsulfoxide with 2-phenyl-2-hexafluoropropanol prepared from the treatment of diarylsulfide. The study finds that moisture must be avoided during the reaction. The Martin's sulfurane is a very powerful dehydration reagent and can be applied to efficiently dehydrate alcohols under very mild conditions. Several dehydration process have been discussed using Martin's sulfurane. It has been found that the Martin's sulfurane, together with the Burgess reagent and DAST, fails to dehydrate a tertiaryl alcohol to form an exo-double bond. Besides this, various other sulfuranes have been developed.
