General description

The methyl oleate monolayers at the air-water interface undergoes ozonolysis that results in rapid loss of material through cleavage of the C=C bond and evaporation/dissolution of reaction products.

Application

Methyl oleate can be used as a reactant to synthesize:
  • Epoxidized methyl oleate via epoxidation.
  • Allyl azides via manganese(III) acetate-mediated addition of azide in the alkyl chain.
  • Bromohydrin products via hydroxybromination with N-bromosuccinimide.
