Benzenesulfonyl radical can be generated from sodium benzenesulfinate in aqueous acetic acid or formic acid. A benzenesulfonyl radical induced radical reaction of ω-allylsulfonylalkyl substituted aromatic and heteroaromatic derivatives is described. Alkyl radicals can be generated efficiently from allylsulfones. This sulfonyl radical induced reaction provides a synthetically useful method for the synthesis of polycyclic aromatic and heteroaromatic derivatives.
