Enzyme-catalysed synthesis and reactions of benzene oxide/oxepine derivatives of methyl benzoates.
TLDR
The isolation of a stable oxepine metabolite, from methyl benzoate, allied to evidence of the migration and retention of a carbomethoxy group, during enzyme-catalysed ortho-hydroxylation of alkyl benzoates to form salicylates, is consistent with a mechanism involving an initial arene epoxidation step.

Isolation of a stable benzene oxide from a fungal biotransformation and evidence for an ‘NIH shift’ of the carbomethoxy group during hydroxylation of methyl benzoates
Substituted methyl benzoates are biotransformed in the fungus Phellinus ribis by enzyme-catalysed epoxidation to yield an isolable benzene oxide and transient benzene oxides, whose presence was Expand
