2,6-Dihydroxypyridine was found to be an efficient reagent in the deoxygenation of sulfoxides. The mild reaction conditions were compatible with functional groups such as ester and carbamate. It was also found that approximately 0.25 equivalents of 2,6-dihydroxypyridine was required for effective reduction. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
