Unexpected Isomerization of Oxetane-Carboxylic Acids – catalyst design.

Saturday, August 13th, 2022

Previously, a mechanism with a reasonable predicted energy was modelled for the isomerisation of an oxetane carboxylic acid to a lactone by using two further molecules of acid to transfer the proton and in the process encouraging an Sn2 reaction with inversion to open the oxetane ring.
