Abstract

Evidence is presented which firmly establishes the absolute configuration of a number of sulfinate esters and sulfoxides. Previous speculations which bear on the problem of the absolute configuration of optically active sulfoxides and sulfinate esters are critically examined. The optical rotatory dispersion of sulfoxides and sulfinate esters has been investigated. The observed Cotton effects are for the most part conveniently categorized according to the previously adopted viewpoint of inherently dissymmetric and asymmetrically perturbed symmetric chromophores.
