Activated 1,2-glycerol carbonate has been subjected to nucleophilic substitution with oxygen-, nitrogen- and sulfur nucleophiles. Selective reactions with thiol derivatives have been especially investigated for the preparation of mono- and dithiofunctionalized 3-carbon synthons.

Keywords: Glycerol carbonate, renewable resources, thiofunctionalization, oxidation
