Reactions between Rongalite (Na+O-SOCH2OH) and epoxides were studied with the aim of developing new synthetic routes for the procurement of sulfone diols. This class of compounds contains essential building blocks in the construction of sulfur heterocycles, which have been implied in the development of several medicinal compounds. Thus far, the desired diols have not been isolated. During control experiments with bromo alcohols, an unknown product was isolated but remains to be identified.
