Methoxycarbonylsulfenyl chloride is used to prepare 3-[(methoxycarbonyl)dithio]-L-alanine by reacting with L-cysteine. Further, it is used in the synthesis of 3-2 pyridinyldithio propanoic acid hydrazide (PDPH). It serves as an important heterobifunctional crosslinker, which is a crosslinker used to make macromolecule-drug conjugates.
Reacts with arenes under Friedel-Crafts conditions to give S-aryl thiocarbonates, thus providing a method for the introduction of the thiol group into an aromatic ring: Z. Chem., 17, 411 (1977).
Reagent for the preparation of unsymmetrical disulfides, by successive reaction with different thiols: Helv. Chim. Acta, 56, 1370 (1973):
Reaction of the same intermediate with KO-t-Bu provides a route to trisulfides. Cyclic trisulfides can also be prepared: J. Org. Chem., 44, 4144 (1979).
