Pt(II) coordination complexes as visible light photocatalysts for the oxidation of sulfides using batch and flow processes
A new catalytic system for the photooxidation of sulfides based on Pt(II) complexes is presented. The catalyst is capable of oxidizing a large number of sulfides containing aryl, alkyl, allyl, benzyl, as well as more complex structures such as heterocycles and methionine amino acid, with complete chemoselectivity. In addition, the first sulfur oxidation in a continuous flow process has been developed.
