3,3-Disubstituted dithiirane 1-oxides were efficiently reduced with Lawesson's reagent (LR) to give the corresponding dithiiranes. X-ray diffraction analysis of 3,3-di(1-adamantyl)dithiirane is reported. Reaction of 34S-labeled 3,3-di(1-adamantyl)dithiirane 1-oxide with LR produced the corresponding dithiirane in which the 34S atoms were retained quantitatively.
