Oxyfunctionalization of non-natural targets by dioxiranes. 5. Selective oxidation of hydrocarbons bearing cyclopropyl moieties.


The powerful methyl(trifluoromethyl)dioxirane (1b) was employed to achieve the direct oxyfunctionalization of 2,4-didehydroadamantane (5), spiro[cyclopropane-1,2'-adamantane] (9), spiro[2.5]octane (17), and bicyclo[6.1.0]nonane (19). The results are compared with those attained in the analogous oxidation of two alkylcyclopropanes, i.e., n-butylcyclopropane… (More)
