Synthesis of _N_-alkylsulfonamides by borane-dimethyl sulfide reduction of _N_-acylsulfonamides.

Abstract

A convenient synthesis of N-alkylsulfonamides in good to excellent yields by redn. of N-acylsulfonamides using BH3┬ĚSMe2 is described. This methodol. presents an attractive alternative for sulfonamide formation.
