Hydroxysulfuranyl radicals formed during the 'OH-induced oxidation of β-hydroxy-sulfides and α-(methyl)thioacetamide immediately fragmented to yield alkylthiomethyl radicals and, as stable products, formaldehyde or carbon dioxide, respectively. No intermediary sulfur radical cations and their dimeric three-electron bonded complexes (S...S)+ were observed at neutral to alkaline pH in contrast to when the sulfur radical cations were generated at low pH or through the 4-carboxybenzophenone-sensitized photooxidation. A detailed mechanism, including a hydrogen transfer between the hydroxy/amide group and the oxygen of the hydroxysulfuranyl moiety, within a six-membered cyclic structure, is proposed and discussed.
