Synthesis and X-ray structural study of bis(2-sodiumsulfonylethyl) sulfoxide hexahydrate

  • 22 Accesses


The structure of bis(2-sodiumsulfonylethyl) sulfoxide hexahydrate (1), which was synthesized by the reaction of divinyl sulfoxide with sodium metabisulfite in an aqueous ethanol medium, has been determined by X-ray structural analysis. Both Na+ cations are coordinated by six O atoms of crystallization water molecules and SO3 groups; the coordination sphere is a distorted octahedron. The crystals are stabilized by an extensive network of hydrogen bonds through the water molecules of crystallization.
