Abstract

Preliminarily studies on cyclic diacyl peroxides have shown novel and superior reactivities compared with their acyclic diacyl peroxide counterparts in many reaction types. After summarizing the methods available for the preparation of cyclic diacyl peroxides and describing their structural features, this review brings together an overview of their reactivities with respect to oxidations and decarboxylations, and demonstrates the advantages of reactions with cyclic diacyl peroxides, which include metal-free, additive-free, milder conditions, higher yields and better selectivities.

1 Introduction

3 Structures and Stabilities of Cyclic Diacyl Peroxides

4 Oxidation Reactions

4.1 Oxidative Additions to Alkenes

4.2 Oxidation Reactions of Heteroatoms

4.3 Oxidation Reactions of 1,3-Dicarbonyl Compounds

4.4 Hydroxylations of Arenes

5 Decarboxylations

6 Conclusion
