The Baeyer-Villiger Oxidation of a ketone using triflouro-1,1,1-ethaneperoxoic acid, passing through intermediate phases to produce an ester
A triflouromethane group
Terminal group 1
Terminal group 2
The initial ketone
A ketone, consisting of a carbon atom double-bonded to an oxygen atom and singly bonded to two "terminal groups"
Oxygen atom double-bonded to the group
The carbon atom bonded to the oxygen in the ketone
terminal group 1
Single bond to terminal group 1
Single bond to terminal group 2
Reagent, triflouro-1,1,1-ethaneperoxoic acid
Initial reaction steps
The acid's hydrogen breaks the double bond of the ketone's oxygen atom and forms an OH group
The oxygen atom that held the hydrogen on the reagent acid takes up the free bond to the central carbon atom.
