Abstract

1. Some α-monosubstituted β -epoxides were synthesized: α-methyl- and α-phenyl-trimethylene oxides, and also the previously undescribed α-butyl- and α-cyclohexyl-trimethylene oxides. 2. The thermal transformations of these β-epoxides at 300-500° were investigated, and it was shown that all the β-epoxides undergo cleavage of the ring into two parts with formation of formaldehyde and the corresponding olefin.
