Visible-light-induced selective synthesis of sulfoxides from alkenes and thiols using air as the oxidant

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly selective synthesis of sulfoxides from alkenes and thiols was established by visible-light photoredox catalysis at room temperature. This metal-free transformation protocol, which uses inexpensive Rose Bengal as the photocatalyst and air as the green oxidant, opens a new door toward the facile and practical construction of sulfoxides.
