Abstract: A “green” highly selective oxidation of organic sulfides to the corresponding sulfoxides was developed using hydrogen peroxide and glacial acetic acid under transition metal-free and mild conditions. The oxidation procedure is very simple and the products are easily isolated in excellent yields (90-99%).
Keywords: Sulfide; glacial acetic acid; hydrogen peroxide; selective oxidation; sulfoxide
