Used in several different ways for the introduction of the thiol group: Radical addition to unactivated alkenes: J. Chem. Soc., 2123 (1951). Conjugate (Michael) addition to activated double bonds: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 77, 5144 (1955); 81, 1224 (1959). Nucleophilic displacement of halide, tosylate or acetate: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 73, 2659 (1951); Carbohydr. Res., 17, 457 (1971). Alcohols can be converted to thiol esters under Mitsunobu conditions, followed by LAH reduction to the thiol: Tetrahedron Lett., 3119 (1981).
