Studies on the Autoxidation of Some Monocyclic OlefinsThe autoxidations of cyclopentene, cyclohexene, cycloheptene, cyclooctene, cycloocta-1,5-diene, 1-methylcyclopentene, 1-methylcyclohexene, 1-methylcycloheptene, 1-methylcyclooctene, methylene cyclopentene, and methylene cyclohexene with pure oxygen under normal pressure were studied. The epoxides formed were determined gaschromatographically. In most cases also the products of allylic oxidation were analyzed and their structures elucidated after reduction to the corresponding allyl alcohols. The portions of high boiling or polymeric products which could not be detected gaschromatographically and also the real yields of epoxides were determined by balance experiments in the presence of inert internal standards.
