A new TBHP/TBAI-mediated reaction of propargyl alcohols with sulfonyl hydrazides in the presence of HOAc has been established, in which a wide variety of allenyl sulfones were obtained in moderate to excellent yields. Mechanistic studies indicate that this transformation involves HOAc-promoted sulfonohydrazide intermediate formation, sequential C–O, C–N, and N–S bond cleavage, and C–S bond formation. Significantly, this sulfonohylation proceeds in a radical process and shows highly functional group compatibility and excellent regioselectivity, with a short reaction time and inexpensive reagents.
