A simple, rapid, high-yielding and environmentally benign method for the conversion of esters and amides to the corresponding thio compounds was carried out using thiourea as thionating agent under solvothermal reaction. All the compounds isolated in good yields were characterized both by spectral analysis and comparing them with the authentic samples synthesized using the literature method.
