Intramolecular redox reaction: Heating N-alkyl, N-allyl-, and N-benzyl-substituted S-alkenyl sulfoximines under appropriate conditions results in the formation of NH-S-alkyl sulfoximines. The intramolecular redox reaction involves a hydride transfer that occurs by a 6-endo-trig process. The intermediates in the reaction can also give access to four- and six-membered heterocyclic rings and a new class of chiral dienes.
