Abstract: Bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) selenoxide has been synthesized by oxidation of bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) selenide with aqueous H2O2 and characterized by elemental analysis and NMR spectroscopy (1H, 13C{1H} and 77Se{1H}). The single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that the selenium atom adopts a trigonal pyramidal configuration. The reactions of bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) selenoxide with various thiols and other proton donor species in CDCl3 have been studied by 77Se{1H}; NMR spectroscopy that with thiols at room temperature regenerated the selenide. The data indicate that the selenoxide acts as a hydrogen bond acceptor to give Mes2Se=OHX (Mes = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl or mesityl) species.
