Epoxidation of Alkenes & Halohydrins

Epoxidation of Alkenes & Halohydrins

Epoxides can be synthesized by either using alkenes of halohydrins. When a alkene is reacted with a peroxycarboxylic acid like mCPBA(
meta-Chloroperoxybenzoic acid) an epoxide is formed.

Or simply adding a strong base like NaOH to a halohydrin, gives a epoxide end product.

So why not create a poster for these cool reactions! Here you have it! Do share!
