Oxidation of allylselenides with the sharpless AD-reagents

A. Krief, C. Colaux, W. Dumont

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Allylselenides are efficiently oxidized by AD-mix reagents. Oxidation takes chemoselectively place on the selenium atom of allylselenides bearing a methylseleno or a phenylseleno moiety, but chemoselectively occurs on the C,C double bond of the corresponding o-nitrophenyl derivatives.
