4-Methylmorpholine N-oxide monohydrate is used as a solvent to prepare cellulose fibers. It is an oxidant and involved in the catalytic OsO4 oxidation of olefins to cis-1,2-diols. It is also involved in ruthenium catalyzed oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones.
Stoichiometric oxidant permitting the use of Osmium(VIII) oxide, 12103, catalytically in the cis-hydroxylation of alkenes: Tetrahedron Lett., 1973 (1976): Org. Synth. Coll., 6, 342 (1988). For use in the asymmetric dihydroxylation (ADH) reaction, catalyzed by Osmium(VIII) oxide, 12103, see: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 110, 1968 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 383 (1998).
In the presence of Ru catalysts such as RuCl3 or Dichlorotris(triphenylphosphine)ruthenium(II), L00373, oxidizes various types of alcohol to carbonyl compounds: Tetrahedron Lett., 2503 (1976). See also Tetra-n-propylammonium perruthenate(VII), B24511.
In the presence of 4A molecular sieves in acetonitrile, activated (e.g. benzylic) halides can be oxidized to aldehydes and ketones: Synth. Commun., 22, 1967 (1992).
Boronic esters formed by treatment of aryl bromides in THF with n-BuLi, followed by trimethyl borate, can be oxidized in situ to phenols without isolation of the boronic acid: Synlett, 931 (1995)./n
