Hydrogen phosphates have been explored as organocatalysts for the oxidation of a series of aryl alkyl sulfides and 1,3-dithianes derived from aldehydes with aqueous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as the terminal oxidant. The corresponding sulfoxides are obtained in moderate to excellent yield (up to 99%) with excellent diastereoselectivity (up to>99:1 dr).

Key words: thioether, mercaptal, oxidation, sulfoxide, phosphates
