Abstract

Aryl imidazolyl sulfones bearing pendant hemisuccinamido groups for conjugation to biopolymer transport systems were synthesized from sulfide precursors. The peroxide‐effected oxidation at sulfur was invariably accompanied by some cleavage‐oxidation of the carboxamido groups to nitro functionalities, a process which could be minimized by careful control of the reaction conditions.
