The course of reaction of aryl and heteroaryl sulfonamides with diphenylcarbonate (DPC) and 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP) was found to depend on the pKa of the sulfonamide used. Aryl sulfonamides with pKa approximately 10 gave 4-dimethylamino-pyridinium arylsulfonyl-carbamoylides, while the more acidic heteroaryl sulfonamides (pKa approximately 8) furnished 4-dimethylaminopyridinium heteroarylsulfonyl carbamates. Both the carbamoylides and carbamate salts reacted with aliphatic and aromatic amines with the formation of appropriate aryl(heteroaryl)sulfonyl ureas, and therefore, can be regarded as safe and stable substitutes of the hazardous and difficult to handle aryl(heteroaryl)sulfonyl isocyanates.
