Abstract

Results of oxidation of thiols to disulfides with 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethyl- hydantoin (DBDMH) are described. A simple addition of 0.20-0.25 mol equivalent of solid DBDMH to thiol in chloroform at room temperature yielded the disulfides in excellent yield. The reaction is extremely fast and gave no other oxidized side products.
