Abstract:Mechanistic elucidation of an oxygen transfer reaction was sought by the application of the endocyclic restriction test toward an aldehyde-mediated epoxidation of olefins by molecular oxygen. The differentiation between alternate oxygen transfer reagents is provided by stereochemical studies, and well as by results from the endocyclic restriction test. Support for a radical chain mechanism that relies on an acylperoxy radical as the active oxidant is provided. Subsequent decarboxylation and epoxide ring-opening are proposed to rationalize the furan product obtained from the reaction.
