Electrochemical synthesis of methyl sulfoxides from thiophenols/thiols and dimethyl sulfoxide

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new route for a one-pot synthesis of methyl sulfoxides from thiophenols/thiols and dimethyl sulfoxide using an electrochemical technique was developed. This protocol proceeded smoothly by employing electrons and hydrogen peroxide as clean oxidants, and a wide range of aromatic and aliphatic sulfoxides were synthesized in moderate to good yields.
