Copper-catalyzed aerobic oxidative cleavage of C-C bonds in epoxides leading to aryl ketones.

Abstract

A novel copper-catalyzed aerobic synthesis of ketones from epoxides via cleavage of C-C single bonds has been discovered. This reaction constitutes a new transformation from epoxides into ketones.
