Abstract : An efficient protocol was developed for the Friedel Crafts type thioarylation for the synthesis of aromatic/heteroaromaticthioamide derivatives from aryl isothiocyanates and electron rich aromatic/heteroaromatic molecules by employing the Lewis acid AlCl3 and the less hazardous solvent cyclohexane at 70°C. The developed protocol offers advantages over the previous methods such as use of stoichiometric amount of reactants/reagent, less toxic solvent, shorter reaction time and higher yields.
