cis-Cyclooctene is used as a displaced ligand in chlorobis(cyclooctene)rhodium dimer and chlorobis(cyclooctene)iridium dimer in organometallic chemistry. It acts as a monomer used in synthetic chemistry. It is used to prepare 1-chloro-4-(trichloromethyl) cyclooctane by reaction with carbon tetrachloride using dichlorotris(triphenylphosphine) ruthenium(II) as a catalyst. Further, it is used to study the alkenes chemisorbed on silicon(100) by scanning tunneling microscopy.
For example of the addition of NOCl to an alkene and subsequent cleavage of the ɑ-chloro oxime by the abnormal Beckmann reaction to the ω-cyanoaldehyde, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 266 (1973).
Addition of dibromocarbene (see Bromoform, A11904) and ring-opening by reaction with MeLi leads to the cyclic allene 1,2-cyclononadiene: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 306 (1973).
The epoxidation of alkenes by H2O2 in methanol in the presence of acetonitrile is described for cyclooctene. The active species is the peroxyimidic acid, and the reaction is, with proper precautions, suitable for scale-up: Org. Synth. Coll., 7, 126 (1990).
