General description

Benzyl sulfone is a cyclic sulfone. Benzyl sulfone (Dibenzyl sulfone) on pyrolysis at 290°C yields stillbene and toluene. Mechanism of pyrolysis of dibenzyl sulfones at 600-700°C has been reported. Benzyl sulfone forms sodium salt with metallic sodium and with sodium ethoxide. Cryoscopic behavior of benzyl sulfone was investigated.
