Optically pure S-arylmercapturate derivatives (4a-d) were efficiently synthesized via the reaction of Boc-L-Ser-OMe (6) with a variety of disulfides (5a-d) in the presence of tri-n-butylphosphine. The procedure was successfully applied to the synthesis of the enantiomerically pure S-thienylmercapturic acid (2), a metabolite of antiinflammatory drug DUP697 (1).
