A green and potentially scalable continuous flow synthesis of a popular sulfone containing nutraceutical, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), has been demonstrated in a Vapourtec tubular reactor platform via metal catalyst-free hydrogen peroxide mediated oxidation of dimethyl sulfoxide. Under optimized conditions, MSM could be obtained in >85% isolated yield and purity >99% with a productivity of 23.6 g/h simply by cooling the reaction mixture collected at the output.
