The synthesis of four novel organosulfur donors carrying two or more hydroxymethyl groups are described. TTF nuclei are fused to 1,4-dithiepine and/or 1,4-dithiine rings and in two cases both outer rings carry functionality capable of introducing hydrogen bonding; for the two chiral organosulfur donor molecules both racemic and enantiopure forms are prepared.
