Abstract

Desulfurization reactions using triply bonded dimolybdenum and ditungsten organometallic complexes are described. Esters of thioglycolic acid and related compounds could be desulfurized in high selectivities and conversions. A bimetallic mechanism, in which HSCH2COOR is added to the MM triple bond thus forming a six-membered ring intermediate, is proposed.
