Alkyl- and aryl vinyl sulfones were obtained by eosin Y (EY)-mediated visible-light photooxidation of sulfinate salts and the reaction of the resulting S-centered radicals with alkenes. Optimized reaction conditions, the sulfinate and alkene scope, and X-ray structural analyses of several reaction products are provided. A detailed spectroscopic study explains the reaction mechanism, which proceeds through the EY radical cation as key intermediate oxidizing the sulfinate salts.
