Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthetic uses of different peroxides for organic synthesis have been widely studied. Among these peroxides, meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (mCPBA) is an efficient oxidizing reagent and have been used for many oxidative transformations. mCPBA is widely used for chemical transformations such as the oxidation of carbonyl compounds, iminoindolines, olefins, imines, alkanes, silyl enol ethers, N- and S-heterocycles, active methylene groups, fluoromethylated allylic bromides, cyclic acetals, N-substituted phthalimidines, selenides, furans and phosphates. The purpose of this review is to collect and discuss the synthetic applications of meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (mCPBA) over the past few decades.
