Disulfide formation via sulfenamides.


A phosphine-mediated one-step disulfide formation from S-nitrosothiols has been developed. This reaction can convert unstable S-nitrosothiols to stable disulfides via sulfenamide intermediates under very mild conditions. It has the potential to be used for the detection of S-nitrosothiols.
