Benzene oxide–oxepin. Oxidation to muconaldehyde

Abstract

The benzene oxide–oxepin system is converted into muconaldehyde by oxidation with peroxy-acids or with N-bromosuccinimide in aqueous dimethyl sulphoxide. Comparative studies on indane 3a,7a-oxide and 2,7-dimethyloxepin lead to the conclusion that the oxidative ring opening involves the oxepin tautomer.
