An oxidative cross-coupling reaction between aldehydes and sulfoximines involving dual C-H/N-H functionalization has been developed. This reaction process is facilitated by a simple copper catalyst (1 mol loading) and tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as the oxidant and proceeds under mild reaction conditions to afford a series of valuable N-acylated sulfoximine derivatives in excellent yields.
