Abstract

Abstract This paper reports the preparative photosensitized redox cleavage of β-phenylthioalcohols derived from epoxides to give carbonyl and thioether functionalities in mostly fair to excellent yields. The method potentially represents the first synthetically viable methodology to effect, albeit indirectly, the redox cleavage of olefins.
