Ruthenium Tetraoxide Oxidation of Ethers

Alvin Sherman Library 2053

It has shown that, among ethers, tetrahydrofuran (THF) is difficult to oxidize to the corresponding lactone due to completing ring opening and formation of glutaric acid. Herein we report results of the study to examine the effects of various co-oxidants and phase transfer catalysts on the oxidation of THF.
