Rhodium complexes can cause the catalytic oxidation of cyclohexene to give ketone, alcohol, and epoxide. The product distribution is dissimilar to that of the metal-catalyzed decomposition of cyclohexene hydroperoxide(V). Ketone and alcohol are derived from the decomposition of the intermediate hydroperoxide (V) but epoxide is not formed by the oxygen transfer reaction from V. Oxidation of methylcyclohexenes was also studied and discussed in relation to the effect of methyl substituent.
