An important synthetic approach to arenethiols is from the corresponding phenols. This reaction cannot be realized directly, but there are a number of multistep procedures. The most widely used of these methods is the NewmanKwart rearrangement, which consists of the successive preparation of the O-aryl thiocarbamate, the S-aryl thiocarbamate, and the arenethiol, as exemplified by the preparation of arenethiol 13 from phenol 10 via thiocarbamates 11 and 12 (Scheme 7).[‌35‌,‌36‌] Although this route appears lengthy, it seems to be reliable, and the yields are good in each step.
