The feedstock contains three types of sulfur compounds: 1) aliphatic and nonheterocyclic aromatic sulfur compounds (AASC), including thiols, sulfides and thiophenes, 2) benzothiophene (BT) and benzothiophenes (BTs) with alkyl substituents containing 1-5 carbon atoms, 3) dibenzothiophene (DBT) and dibenzothiophenes (DBTs) with alkyl substituents containing 1-2 carbon atoms.

These include the triphenylethylenes--clomiphene citrate (Clomid), tamoxifen, and toremifene--and the benzothiophene, raloxifene.
They added benzothiophene to make 64077 more oil-soluble so the experimental drug could be taken orally without breaking down before entering the body's cells, where 5-LO triggers leukotriene production.
Using the oxidation process it is possible to convert thiophene, benzothiophene, dibenzothiophene and their methyl and higher alkyl derivatives into sulfones and sulfoxides.
In these fractions they are represented by aliphatic saturated and unsaturated ketones, cycloketones, aromatic ketones, alkyl benzofurans, alkyl benzothiophenes, etc.
