Abstract

B(C<inf>6</inf>F<inf>5</inf>)<inf>3</inf>-catalyzed hydrodesulfurization of carbon-sulfur bonds was achieved using triethylsilane as the reducing agent. The corresponding products were obtained in good yields under mild reaction conditions. This protocol could be applied to the reduction of sulfides, including benzyl and alkyl sulfides and dithianes, with high chemoselectivities. (Chemical Equation Presented).
