Facile epoxidation of α, β-unsaturated ketones with urea-2, 2- dihydroperoxypropane as a new oxidant
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016
Various aromatic α, β-unsaturated ketones were successfully transformed into their corresponding epoxides using urea-2,2-dihydroperoxypropane as the oxygen source for the first time. The reactions were carried out under mild alkaline conditions at room temperature in high yields and short reaction times.
