AbstractUsually oxygen cannot participate in the selective oxidation reaction of thioether to sulfoxide, which is attributed to its inactive feature. Although UV-light irradiation can activate O-2, this process also results in UV-induced hole (h(vb)(+)) generation. This oxidative species and O-2 can be consumed for the formation of free radical intermediates that leads to uncontrolled auto-oxidation products resulting in low selectivity. Current work aims to develop an approach for the aerobic oxidation of thioether to sulfoxide by exploring the synergy between triethylamine and mesoporous Co-N-TiO2 (nitrided @ 500 degrees C for 2 h) microspheres (with a large surface area: 124 m(2) g(-1)); the oxidation is carried out via visible-light photoredox catalysis. Triethylamine, due to its electron donating ability, acts as a redox mediator. With a lower band gap and level of conduction band minimum (-0.605 V vs. NHE), the Co-N-TiO2 sample has the ability to be an efficient and selective catalyst. Excellent conversion from the selective oxidation of thioanisole (76.4%) under 12 h visible light irradiation is observed. It may be noted that Co doping into TiO2 alone does not aid in obtaining a good photocatalyst; in fact this sample shows the Moss-Burstein effect. We have also shown that the reported photocatalyst is applicable for the conversion of several other thioethers to sulfoxides; generally high conversion rates and selectivities are observed. The reaction mechanisms are studied using UV-visible absorption spectra and the oxidation-extraction photometry (OEP) method. This result is likely useful for further exploration of surface complex photocatalysts for many other aerobic oxidation reactions.
