Organic and Biological Chemistry


The oxidation of 3-carene with mercuric acetate was studied. The oxidative acetylation of 3-carene with mercuric acetate leads to a less complex mixture of products than oxidation with lead tetraacetate. The main products are p-mentha-l,5-dien-8-ol and, in smaller amount, p-isopropenyltoluene.
