This thesis documents the development of novel methodologies for access to sulfur-containing compounds, including sulfones, sulfonamides and benzoisothiazoles. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the applications and the synthesis of sulfonyl-containing compounds. A comprehensive introduction to the development of sulfur dioxide surrogates and their applications in transition metal-catalysed organic chemistry is given. Chapter 2 describes the development of a one-step copper(I)-catalysed sulfonylative Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling reaction. A wide range of aryl and alkenyl boronic acids are coupled with aryl and alkenyl iodides to give the corresponding sulfones. A two-step one-pot sulfination/derivatisation method was also developed, allowing access to compounds including β-hydroxy sulfones, sulfonamides and sulfonyl fluorides. Chapter 3 illustrates a one-step copper(II)-catalysed sulfonamide synthesis using boronic acids, amines and SO2. Various aryl and alkenyl boronic acids as well as amines and anilines are compatible, including active pharmaceutical ingredients such as amoxapine and desloratadine. Chapter 4 details an aryne-based selective formation of substituted benzoisothiazoles. Different substitution pattern of the aryne precursor and the thiadiazole are employed, with the target heterocycles being obtained in good to excellent yields. Chapter 5 summarises the research and the future work. Chapter 6 documents the experimental procedures and data.
