What is it about?

The oxidation of a hydroxysulfide in the pinane series by use of m-chloroperbenzoic acid resulted in the formation of the corresponding hydroxysulfoxide as a mixture of two diastereomers in 4:5 ratio. According to single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) results, it is established that the diastereomeric mixture of sulfoxides crystallizes in the “racemic compound-like” manner under formation of asymmetric dimers through S = O·· H–O interactions.

Why is it important?

According to single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) results, it is established that the diastereomeric mixture of sulfoxides crystallizes in the “racemic compound-like” manner under formation of asymmetric dimers through S = O·· H–O interactions. The behaviour of the diastereomeric mixture of pinane derived sulfoxides in crystals, melts and in tetrachloromethane solutions were studied by IR spectroscopy.
