Toward a practical and waste-free synthesis of thioureas in water.
ABSTRACT An operationally simple and entirely green protocol for the synthesis of thiourea derivatives by the reaction of carbon disulfide with primary amines in pure water is developed. This reaction is a highly atom-economic process for production of highly pure, hindered thioureas without any catalyst and tedious work-up.

ABSTRACT: A simple deep eutectic solvent based on tin (II) chloride was used as a dual catalyst and environmentally benign reaction medium for an efficient synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-one derivatives, from aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes, 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds, and urea in good-to-excellent yields and short reaction time. This simple ammonium deep eutectic solvent, easily synthesized from choline chloride and tin chloride, is relatively inexpensive and recyclable, making it applicable for industrial applications.TheScientificWorldJOURNAL 01/2012; 2012:908702. · 1.66 Impact Factor
