ABSTRACT

A range of sulphides can be selectively oxidized to the corresponding sulphoxides in good yields using NaClO/silica sulphonic acid as an efficient and recyclable solid acid catalyst, in both water and 50/50 water/EtOH as solvents. The new method compares favourably with previous methods in the literature.

Key words: Silica sulphonic acid, heterogeneous catalyst, oxidation, sulphides, sulphoxides
