Abstract

We describe the results of manganese(III) acetate based regioselective oxidation of various alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclopentanones leading to alpha'-acetoxy alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclopentanones in good yields. Products due to monophenyl and diphenyl substituted dimerization have been identified as byproducts of the reaction. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
