It has been shown in the preceding experiment that the process of reducing arenesulfonyl chlorides with red phosphorus in the presence of iodine catalyst is useful for the preparation of diaryl disulfides possessing a reducible group. The process was then applied to arenesulfonyl chlorides possessing hydrolyzable groups, such as cyano, acetamido, and ether and ester bondings. It was thereby learned that depending on the position of the cyano group, the cyano group is hydrolyzed together with the reduction of the sulfonyl chloride group. Other hydrolyzable groups remained intact and corresponding disulfides were obtained.
