Abstract

Selective partial oxidation of a series of olefins was accomplished using molecular oxygen, catalysed by (alumina)Rh(O2). Ketones were the major products; no allylic oxidation was noted, and little combustion or double-bond cleavage was observed. A mechanism involving a carbocationic intermediate is proposed; competitive trapping to either coordinated glycolate or coordinated epoxide is suggested to give the observed ketonic products.
