Abstract

The authors present a review on some recent developments on the synthesis, chemical reactivity and theoretical studies of Tetroxanes analysing their main physical chemistry properties. The authors examine the critical points of the PES of different conformers, and reaction paths at singlet ground state and triplet state of the tetroxane, leader member of the cyclic diperoxide compound family.

Preparative Methods

The ketone and aldehyde diperoxide (Figure 1 and Figure 2) of the type illustrated in Scheme 2 was prepared from the acid catalysed oxidation of different types of ketones or aldehydes with hydrogen peroxides (about 60% concentration) at temperatures below -10°C (Scheme 1) (Cafferatta et al., 1984, 1986, 1990, 1991, 1995; Jorge et al., 2000, 2001, 2002; Leiva et al., 2001).
