The synthesis of various N-monosubstituted trichloromethanesulfinamides by two alternative and novel procedures is described. All these compounds have been found to undergo base-induced elimination of chloroform with formation of the corresponding N-sulfinylamines. Reaction proceeds smoothly under mild conditions.
