Abstract

A series of epoxides were deoxygenated with the use of β-diketonate complexes of low-valent vanadium and molybdenum to give olefins and oxidized metallic species. Stereospecificity of deoxygenation was variable and was found to depend on the size of substituents on the oxirane ring and on the β-diketonate ligands. A mechanism is proposed for deoxygenation based on a metallooxetane intermediate.
