Polarographic Reduction of Aldehydes and Ketones. V. Reduction Course of Some β-Ketosulphides and Effects of Alkyl Groups on Sulphur

β-Ketosulphides of the type C6H5COCH2CH(C6H5)SR are reduced at the carbonyl group. The protonized carbonyl group is reduced in two one-electron steps, the unprotonized form in one two-electron process, which differs from the reduction of corresponding β-aminoketones. The effects of alkyl groups at sulphur and nitrogen on the reduction of the carbonyl group are compared.
