COPPER TRIFLATE CATALYZED BAEYER- VILLIGER OXIDATION OF KETONES
Keywords:oxidation, ketone, lactone, ester, catalyst
AbstractA simple, efficient and eco-friendly method for Baeyer-Villiger oxidation reaction has been developed. The reaction employed m-CPBA as the oxidant with Cu(OTf)2 catalyst and was carried out in CH2Cl2 at room temperature. Nine lactones and ester were obtained in excellent yield (85-94%). Furthermore, the catalyst could be reused twice without considerable loss in activity.
