Communication 12. Differing stabilities of cis- and trans-1-acety1-1,2-cyclohexanediols

  • 17 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The acetolysis of 1-acetyl-1,2-epoxycyclohexane (IV) with glacial acetic acid gives the trans diol monoacetate (V).

  2. 2.

    A study was made of the stabilities of the isomeric acetylcyclohexanediols (II) and (III) under alkaline and acid conditions. Under alkaline conditions the trans acetylcyclohexanediol (II) and its monoacetate (V) are converted into the cis acetylcyclohexanediol (III). Under these conditions the latter is not isomerized into the trans isomer.

  3. 3.

    Some observations are made relating to the possible causes of the different behaviors of substances of the trans and cis series in acetylation and reactions leading to carbonyl derivatives.
