Oxidation of unsaturated aldehydes by different oxidants

Authors: 
Zoryan Pikh

The new data about oxidation of unsaturated aldehydes of a general structure R–CH = C(R)–CHO by molecular oxygen (in liquid and gaseous phase), peracids and hydrogen peroxide were obtained. The composition of reaction products for a series of aldehydes with different structures was determined. The dependencies of the selectivity of reaction from an aldehyde structure and oxidant type have been evaluated. It has been assumed that a stage of aldehyde interaction with peracid determines the formation of reaction products. The common mechanisms of unsaturated aldehydes oxidation by different oxidants have been established on the basis of generalization of obtained results.
