Study of Influence of cis-trans Isomerization on Selective Oxidations of Alkenes by Nitrous Oxide
In the present work the influence of cis-trans isomerization of heptane-3 on reactivity of C=C bond of alkenes towards N2O as well as the contribution of the reaction route with the break of the initial double bounds were studied. It was shown that both cis- and trans-heptane isomers perform very similar reactivity. At the same time for trans-hepten-3 the contribution of the route with C-C bound break is approximately three times higher comparing with cis-heptane-3. The study reveals the common regularities of the oxidation of compounds with C=C bounds by nitrous oxide. The observed difference in contribution of the reaction route with C-C bound break for the olefins confirms the results obtained for rubbers previously.
