Title

The reactions of substituted naphthalenes with butyl mercaptides

Abstract

The reactions of butyl mercaptides with fluoro-, bromo-, nitro-, and methoxynaphthalenes in DMSO and methanol have been studied. The halonaphthalene reactions gave reasonably good yields of alkyl naphthyl sulfides via direct nucleophilic substitution. 1-Halonaphthalene gave only 1-substituted alkyl naphthyl sulfide and 2-halo- naphthalenes gave only 2-substituted alkyl naphthyl sulfides. No alkyl naphthyl sulfide was produced from either methoxynaphthalene or nitronaphthalene.
