As one of the most important transformations in organic synthesis, deoxygenation reduction of sulfoxides to thioethers has attracted wide attention in researches and applications. With the development of organicmetallic chemistry, many mild and practical methods have been developed to reduce sulfoxides. In this review, based on the types of the reducing agents, the research progress on the deoxygenation reduction of sulfoxides to thiothers in recent 20 years is summarized. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of these reduction systems, some reaction mechanisms and the prospects of research in this field are discussed.

Key words: sulfoxide, deoxygenation reduction, thioether, research progress
