An efficient electrochemical flow process for the selective oxidation of sulfides to sulfoxides and sulfones and of sulfoxides to N-cyanosulfoximines has been developed. In total, 69 examples of sulfoxides, sulfones, and N-cyanosulfoximines have been synthesized in good to excellent yields and with high current efficiencies. The synthesis was assisted and facilitated through a supporting electrolyte-free, fully automated electrochemical protocol that highlights the advantages of flow electrolysis.
