This is not an answer to the question "can the sulfoxide be synthesized in significant yield" (and under which conditions). Instead, this is a "naive" prediction based on the data you provide and two assumptions: The predicted thermodynamic values in the articles you cite are accurate at 298 K. The heat and entropy of formation of (2) and (3) from (1) are ...

The name 'formic acid' has been derived from the name 'formica' as it is derived literally from ants. Wikipedia clearly states: The word "formic" comes from the Latin word for ant, formica, referring to its early isolation by the distillation of ant bodies. If you type 'formic acid etymology' in Google, it will give two links that proves the above ...

Your formula, $\ce{Rb[Pt(NH3)Br2Cl]}$ is correct for the named complex, rubidium amminedibromochloroplatinate(II) (For clear understanding of naming, you may read Naming Coordination Compounds-1 and Naming Coordination Compounds-2). Many coordination compounds have distinct geometric structures. Two common forms are the square planar, in which four ...

A bit more intuitive to interact with may be Chemdoodle Webcomponents which is a JavaScript library set-up to integrate well within webpages and mobile devices like phone or tablet, too. It comprises 2D/3D sketcher, a NMR predictor, and is freely available (open source GPL license). Derived from Chemdoodle, there is a structure -> name utility speking ...

TL; DR: Yes, perborate and peroxoborate are both the same thing. Perborate is just more popular, but peroxoborate is a more literate name for the $\ce{[B2(O2)2(OH)4]^2-}$ ion. A perborate is a name attributed historically in XIX century to the compounds containing $\ce{BO3-}$ anion (see e.g. an overview [1]). In 1900s it quickly gained a foothold in the ...
