CLEAVAGE OF ORGANOSULFUR COMPOUNDS BY METALS. SULFENE CHEMISTRY.
PURDUE UNIV LAFAYETTE IND DEPT OF CHEMISTRY
Reductive cleavages of organic sulfides and sulfones were studied in order to determine a how they could be effected cleanly and in high yield, and b more about their nature and possible mechanistic paths by determining the orientation of such cleavages with unsymmetrical systems and the stereochemistry of these processes. Studies were carried out to determine the possible existence of a sulfene CH2SO2 and the utility of such a highlyreactive sulfur-containing intermediate in synthetic organic chemistry. Results are briefly summarized and a list of publications generated is given.
