Oxidation of alkyl(alkenyl) furyl sulfides by hydrogen peroxide in glacial acetic acid affords alkyl(alkenyl) furyl sulfoxides, which react with acetic acid, acetic anhydride, and a mixture of acetic and trifluoroacetic anhydrides to give α-acyloxy-substituted and unsaturated sulfides as products, while for allyl 2-(5-methylfuryl) sulfoxide a thienofuran compound is obtained.
