The compounds 3a-3c (0.001 mol) were stirred with appropriate sodium salt of dithiocarbamic acid (0.0011 mol) in acetone (30 mL) for 3h.
Finally, compounds 3a-3c were reacted with appropriate dithiocarbamic acid sodium salt to obtain target compounds (4a-4s).
Giuseppi Bruni (1873-1946), Italian chemist, for important contributions to the early discovery and development of organic accelerators, including (1) the use of zinc and other metallic salts of disubstituted dithiocarbamic acids; (2) the use of tetrasubstituted thiuram disulfides for "sulfurless" curing; (3) the use of mercaptobenzothiazole as an accelerator; and for other significant contributions to rubber chemistry.
