The oxidation of sulfides to their corresponding sulfoxides or sulfones has been achieved using a low-cost poly(amidoamine) with a first-generation coupled phosphomolybdate hybrid as the catalyst and aqueous hydrogen peroxide as the oxidant. The reusability of the catalyst was revealed in extensive experiments. The practice of this method in the preparation of a smart drug Modafinil has proved its good applicability. View Full-Text
