Scholarship of Discovery
We are proposing 1-anilino-8-(mercaptoamino)-1,8-octadione as a compound of potential pharmaceutical value. The addition of carbon disulfide to sodium trimethylsilanolate to yield a xanthate product has been analyzed and refined to a 70% yield. Several methods of aminating the xanthate product to yield a sulfenamide have been attempted and analyzed. Multiple attempts have been made to benzoylate the sulfenamide product with little success, with many concerns stemming from the unsuccessful amination reactions.
