Abstract: Alkyl isocyanates are prepared in good to excellent yields by treatment of alcohols, thiols, and trimethylsilyl ethers with 2,4,6-trichloro[1,3,5] triazine/n-Bu_4NOCN in acetonitrile. This method is highly selective for conversion of 1° alcohols to alkyl isocyanates in the presence of 2° and 3° alcohols, thiols, and trimethylsilyl ethers.
Keywords: 2,4,6-Trichloro[1,3,5] triazine (TT), alcohol, thiol, trimethylsilyl ether, alkyl isocyanate
