Potassium thioacetate is an organosulfur compound and a salt with the formula CH3COS−K+. This white, water-soluble solid is used as a reagent for preparing thioacetate esters and other derivatives . It acts as a sulfur source in the synthesis of sulfur-containing organic compounds for the synthesis of heterocycles, polymers, transition-metal ligands, nanoparticles, bioactive compounds and macromolecular inclusion complexes. It is also used for palladium mediated coupling with aryl halides and triflates leading to S-arylthioacetates and derivatives and it is also used as a reagent in the conversion of halides to thiols.
