A comprehensive study of a general and effective one-step procedure for the synthesis of β-sulfonamidodisulfides directly from N-tosyl aziridines in a regio- and stereospecific manner under neutral conditions without the use of any Lewis acid or base has been reported. This methodology is extended to the synthesis of an optically pure cyclic seven-membered disulfide 29. Synthesis of a variety of β-sulfonamidosulfides involving tandem, multistep reactions in one pot is also reported.
