Abstract

Abstract Benzyl alkyl sulfides with alkyl groups from methyl to hexyl, para-alkylbenzyl groups from methyl to butyl, 2-phenylethyl methyl sulfide and 3-phenylpropyl methyl sulfide have been oxidized by cyclohexanone monooxygenase from Acinetobacter NCIB 9871. Sulfoxides with enantiomeric excesses ranging from 80% for the ( R)-configuration to 96% ee for the ( S)-configuration were obtained.
