Carbonyl Oxide, Silicon, Vinyl Ether
Criegee proposed that the ozonolysis mechanism proceeds by means of a [3+2] cycloaddition, forming a carbonyl oxide and a carbonyl. This carbonyl oxide then recombines with the carbonyl, or a dipolarophile. Kuczkowski investigated the ozonolysis of vinyl ethers and found that recombination of the carbonyl oxide and the vinyl ether was observed. We are investigating a way to produce a carbonyl oxide and disconnect it from ozone to react with a dipolarophile by a [3+2] cycloaddition. Currently the synthesis of vinyl peroxidic enols which can tautomerize to carbonyl oxides are being attempted.
