Abstract

Treatment of ketones with bis(trimethylsilyl) peroxide and Lewis acid such as SnCl//4 or BF//3-OEt//2 in dichloromethane at room temperature affords esters in fair to excellent yields. Jasmine lactone is synthesized from 2- left bracket (Z)-pentenyl right bracket cyclopentanine by means of Me//3SiOOSiMe//3-BF//3-OEt//2 system without any protection of the carbon-carbon double bond. The oxidation of enol acetates of ketones to alpha -hydroxy (or alpha -acetoxy) ketones with Me//3SiOOSiMe//3-FeCl//3 system is also disclosed.
