Abstract

Abstract The action of lead tetraacetate on ethanol, 1-propanol, 2-propanol and 2-butanol has been studied under various experimental conditions, and it was found that the tetravalent lead compound reacts with alcohols in ways not so far observed. The possible reaction schemes are discussed in terms of homolytic and heterolytic cleavage of the intermediate alkoxy lead acetate complexes.
