Abstract

Solutions of methanesulfenium 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonate in nitromethane, nitrobenzene, and acetonitrile have been prepared and studied by conductance and nmr techniques. The solutions show salt-like behavior, but conductometric and nmr data suggest specific bonding interactions between sulfenium ion and the solvent or the trinitrobenzenesulfonate anion. The results of this study show that these solvent systems behave as sulfenium ion transfer agents rather than as solutions of “free” methanesulfenium 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonate.
