Shimizu, Emily A.; Cory, Brett; Hoang, Johnson; Castro, Giovanni G.; Jung, Michael F.; Vosburg, David A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A green laboratory experiment has been developed in which students perform an aqueous oxidation/cycloaddition reaction to convert salicyl alcohol into a pentacyclic diepoxydione that is readily isolated by filtration. Drawing on their knowledge of periodate-mediated 1,2-diol cleavage, students propose a mechanism for the oxidation of salicyl…
