It was found that in a wide range of pH in the presence of boric acid the oxidation of diethyl sulfide (Et2S) with hydrogen peroxide in an i-PrOH–H2O medium occurs with the participation of H2O2, HOO–, monoperoxo-(B(OH)3OOH–), and diperoxoborates (B(OH)2(OOH) 2 − ). The stability constants of peroxoborates and the rate constants for the reactions of H2O2, HOO−, B(OH)3(OOH) 2 − , and B(OH)2(OOH) 2 − with Et2S under these conditions were determined.
