A procedure has been proposed for the selective preparation of Esomeprazole via asymmetric oxidation of the corresponding prochiral sulfide in the presence of a catalytic complex derived from titanium(IV) isopropoxide and two different chiral ligands, diethyl d-tartrate and (R)-N,N-dimethyl-1-phenyl-ethanamine.
