Synthesis, Reactivity and Applications of 1,2-Oxathiine 2,2-Dioxides

Orlando Delfim Carvalho Couto De Azevedo, Mark Heron, Dimitrios Zonidis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The structure, synthesis, reactivity and applications of the 1,2-oxathiine 2,2-dioxide ring system are reviewed. This relatively scarcely studied heterocycle can be accessed by a variety of traditional and modern synthetic chemistry strategies and offers great potential as a building block for the construction of acyclic and heterocyclic compounds. Furthermore, the delta-sultone ring is an invaluable reagent for imparting water solubility into a variety of materials including colorants and polymers.
