Abstract

Abstract By analogy between the oxo forms of vanadium (V) and iron (IV), the latter being the active species in oxidations by cytochrome P-450, the system constituted by vanadium oxide (catalyst) and t.-butylhydroperoxide (oxidant) gives good results in the conversation of olefins to the corresding epoxides.
