Reaction of 1-phenylcyclooctene and 1-phenylcycloheptene with N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) in aqueous DMSO gives the corresponding 3-bromo-2-phenylcycloalkenes and 2-phenylcycloalk-2-enols in a ratio of 3 : 1. Unlike them, 1-phenylcyclohexene gives a mixture of 3-bromo-2-phenylcyclohexene and 2-bromo-l-phenylcyclohexanol. The oxidation of allylic alcohols with pyridinium chlorochromate afforded the corresponding α,β-unsaturated ketones.
