Synthesis of a new series of heteroaryl sulfones 6(a–f) in which the heteroaryl part is represented by acridine derivatives has been developed and reported here. The key step of this transformation involves the proton-catalyzed rearrangement of the sulphonamide derivatives 5(a–f) to the corresponding sulfones 6(a–f).
