Green Synthesis of Halogenated Thiophenes, Selenophenes and Benzo[b]selenophenes Using Sodium Halides as a Source of Electrophilic Halogens.

ABSTRACT: Herein, we report the first synthesis of chlorinated benzo[b]selenophenes via environmentally friendly electrophilic chlorocyclization reaction using "table salt" as a source of "electrophilic chlorine" and ethanol as a solvent. In addition, the synthesis of diverse halogenated heterocycles, including 3-chloro, 3-bromo and 3-iodo thiophenes, selenophenes, and benzo[b]selenophenes was successfully accomplished under the same environmentally benign reaction conditions. This methodology has several advantages over other previously reported reactions as it employs simple starting compounds, an environmentally friendly solvent, ethanol, and non-toxic inorganic reagents under mild reaction conditions, resulting in the high product yields.
