Abstract

A simple procedure for the synthesis of cyclic and acyclic thioacetals from aldehydes is described which employs hydrogen chloride solutions generated from acetyl chloride and methanol. It was observed that the reaction could be carded out using catalytic quantities of acetyl chloride, potentially allowing acid sensitive substrates to be used under these conditions.
