Asymmetric Catalytic Sulfoxidation by a Novel VIV8 Cluster Catalyst in the Presence of Serum Albumin: A Simple and Green Oxidation System
RSC Adv. 2016, 6, 44154-44162, 10.1039/C6RA08153C
Enantioselective oxidation of a series of alkyl aryl sulfides catalyzed by a novel VIV8 cluster is tested in an aqueous medium in the presence of serum albumin. The procedure is simple, environmentally friendly, selective, and highly reactive.
