Epoxidation of Olefins with Elemental Fluorine in Water/Acetonitrile Mixtures

Shlomo Rozen, Michael Brand

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Not fluorinated compounds but rather epoxides are formed in good yields from alkenes with the reagent F2/MeCN/H2O. Both alkenes with a terminal double bond, which are especially sensitive to oxidation, and enones react smoothly.
