Formation of peracid during the air oxidation of various aldehydes was found to vary greatly. The peracid formation was found to be extremely easy in trans-π-oxo-camphor where irradiation of light promoted formation of a free radical which in turn produced chain reaction (Fig. 1) and the oxidation proceeded. The peracid (II) formed in this case could not be isolated but it was found that (II) oxidized sodium chloride added during this oxidative reaction to liberate chlorine. By this indirect means, the formation of the peracid during this oxidation was confirmed.
