Alkaline hydrolysis of a thionitrate and a sulfenyl bromide bearing a bowl-type steric protection group produced a stable sulfenic acid. This provides a conclusive demonstration of these elementary processes. It was shown that a very efficient steric protection group is necessary to prevent the condensation of the sulfenate anion generated during the hydrolysis.
