A highly efficient and simple protocol for the construction of aromatic and aliphatic
thioureas from their respective amines in the presence of cheap, readily available and air-stable iron
catalyst in one pot three steps reaction is described. All the reactions were carried out under optimized
reaction conditions to get the target products in good to excellent yields and shorter reaction time.
Keywords: Anilines, iron catalyst, thiocarbamate, thioureas, C-N bond formation, heterocycle.
