Strongly Electron Deficient Sulfonyldithioformate Based RAFT Agents for Hetero Diels-Alder Conjugation: Computational Design and Experimental Evaluation

Nebhani, Leena; Sinnwell, Sebastian; Lin, Ching-Yeh; Coote, Michelle; Stenzel, Martina H; Barner-Kowollik, Christopher


The synthesis of a novel class of reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) agents-based on quantum-chemical ab initio calculations-having methylsulfonyl and phenylsulfonyl moieties as Z-group is described. The resulting C-sulfonyldithioformate transfer agents [benzyl methylsulfonyldithioformate (PSDTF) and benzyl phenylsulfonyldithioformate (PSDTF)] feature extremely strong electron deficient C=S double bonds and should thus be suitable to undergo rapid hetero Diels-Alder (HDA)...[Show more]
