It has been found that the reaction of diphenylmercury with an equimolar amount of thio- or dithio acids gave the corresponding phenylmercury thio- (1) or dithiocarboxylates (2), quantitatively, which further react with thio- or dithio acids to give mercury bis (thio-) (3) or bis(dithiocarboxylates) (4). The phenylmercury dithio salts (2) were found to be the very useful thioacylating agents for primary and secondary amines. The reaction of mercury bis(thiocarboxylates) (3) with
