Disulfide bonds play an important role in determining the structure and stability of proteins and nanoparticles. Despite extensive studies on the oxidation of thiols for the synthesis of disulfides, little is known about the photooxidation of thiols, which may be a clean, safe, and economical alternative to the use of harmful and expensive metal-containing oxidants and catalysts. In this paper, we report the photooxidative coupling of thiophenol derivatives to disulfides. Para-substituted…

Photo-oxidation of an organosulfur for photo-charging of lithium-ion batteries

Polymers of organosulfur with S-S bonds are potential cathode materials for high-capacity lithium-ion batteries, and the photo-oxidation of organosulfurs can be applied in the future to the

Batch and Flow Synthesis of Disulfides by Visible-Light-Induced TiO2 Photocatalysis.

A mild and practical method for the preparation of disulfides through visible-light-induced photocatalytic aerobic oxidation of thiols has been developed. The method involves the use of TiO2 as a

The discovery of the hydrogen bond from p-Nitrothiophenol by Raman spectroscopy: Guideline for the thioalcohol molecule recognition tool

The consistence of the theoretical calculation and experiment reveals that the intermolecular hydrogen bonding yields an octatomic ring structure of PNTP in the solid state, confirmed by the characteristic S-H---O stretching vibration mode.

Photo-induced thiol coupling and C–H activation using nanocrystalline lead-halide perovskite catalysts

The use of photon energy to promote chemical transformations offers versatile control of reaction kinetics and progress. Over the past decade, many photoactive transition-metal complexes and organic

Synthesis of Dithiocatechol-Pendant Polymers.

This work reports the first synthesis of dithiocatechol-pendant polymers using a novel protection-deprotection strategy and shows that besides free-radical polymerization, reversible addition-fragmentation chain-transfer polymerization can also be adopted to synthesize ditho-pendants polymers.

Extreme population inversion in the fragments formed by UV photoinduced S-H bond fission in 2-thiophenethiol.

The present data provide no definitive evidence that complete ring opening can compete with fast S-H bond fission following near UV photoexcitation of 2-thiophenethiol.
