Abstract

Diol reactivity can be manipulated in ionic liquids to selectively give chlorinated or cyclic sulfite/sulfate products depending on the ionic liquid used and the presence or absence of base. In comparison with reactions in dichloromethane, the ionic liquid mediated reactions show greatly improved yields and product stability.
