Sodium bromate

Recent Literature


Oxidation of sulfides to sulfoxides with a catalytic amount of ceric ammonium nitrate reagent supported on silica gel has been achieved using stoichiometric sodium bromate as the primary oxidant. The heterogeneous CAN/NaBrO3 reagent enables the use of an organic solvent and simplifies the reaction work-up and product isolation.
