Hydrogen peroxide, in the presence of zirconium tetrachloride, is a very efficient reagent for the direct oxidative conversion of thiols and disulfides into the corresponding sulfonyl chlorides with high purity through oxidative chlorination. Excellent yields, very short reaction times, mild reaction conditions, and the avoidance of harsh reagents are the main advantages of this method.
