Addition of thioacetic acid to reactive alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds like acrolein or crotonaldehyde in acetone-d6 generates metastable (E)- and (Z)-1-alkenols, which tautomerize slowly at ambient temperature. The 1,4-addition of thioacetic acid and crotonaldehyde to (Z)-3-(acetylsulfanyl)-1-propen-1-ol is reversible with Keq = 5.5 +/- 0.5 L/mol. A concerted, cyclic 1,4-addition mode is proposed to explain the preferred (Z)-stereoselectivity in lower polarity, non-protic solvents.
