1. The thermal conversions of 3-monoalkyl-substituted β-oxides were investigated, using a microreactor mounted in a chromatograph. 2. In the thermal decomposition of this type of β-oxides, there are two primary processes. The main direction of the reaction is decomposition of the molecules to formaldehyde and the corresponding olefins (∼90%). In addition to decomposition, isomerization of the β-oxides and aldehydes (5-7%) was also observed; the formation of the latter may be explained by the influence of the walls of the microreactor. 3. Secondary processes may include decarbonylation of the primary products.
