The reaction of diphenylketene (1) with aryl- and hetaryl-substituted thioketones (2) gave the corresponding 3,3,4,4-tetraarylthietan-2-ones (3) in good yields. Remarkably, the reactions with bis-hetaryl-substituted thioketones occurred significantly faster compared with those involving the bis-aryl-substituted thioketones. The structure of compound 3c has been established by X-ray crystallography.
