α,α-Dibromomethyl ketones were synthesized with high yields through a thiophenol-promoted reduction of α,α,α-tribromomethyl ketones under mild conditions within one hour. A further mechanistic study showed that the reaction proceeded via a radical process. This is an example that uses thiophenol as the radical stimulator in the reduction of multi-halogenated compounds.

Key words: thiophenol, α,α-dibromomethyl ketones, green synthesis, reduction
