Microwave-assisted Copper-catalyzed Synthesis of Aryl Sulfides Derivatives in Water

In aqueous solution, the synthesis of aryl sulfides derivatives from the reaction between thiourea and aryl iodides using copper as catalyst under microwave irradiation was investigated. A variety of aryl sulfides can be synthesized with yields up to 90%.

Key words:microwave irradiation synthesis,thiourea,aryl halides,aqueous solution
