Abstract

Dimethyl sulfide (DMS) was oxidized to dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) in the presence of lyophilized algae and terrestrial plants as long as they contained pigments. Ratios of DMSO produced to initial DMS were independent of the initial DMS concentrations. High pH was not advantageous for oxidation of DMS. Pheophytin was a more effective sensitizer than chlorophyll for oxidation. Plant material appeared to contain more effective DMS oxidizing pigments than chlorophyll.
