Oxidation of Aromatic Side Chains
Oxidation of Aromatic Side Chains: Non-aromatic Selective Oxidation
Selective oxidations can succesfully be carried out at the bridgeheads of certain bicylic hydrocarbons. The order of reactivity is tertiary > secondary > primary and only alcohols are produced. In general, yields are not very high.
The expected yield in this reaction is approximately 15%.
