Rather than proceeding through a Michael-type or 1,4-addition, thioacetic acid adds across unsaturated aldehydes in an autocatalytic manner and involving a double exotherm, as demonstrated by both adiabatic and reaction calorimetry. NMR studies show that an intermediate acyl-thio-hemiacetal is involved and that the product continues to react competitively with thioacetic acid. © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH&Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
