Oxidation of 2-methyl-2-hydroxyadamantane by trifluoroperacetic acid in trifluoroacetic acid gives oxaadamantane and exo-2-oxaadamantane-4-ol in a good yield. Other 2-hydroxyadamantane derivatives do not undergo this transformation. An oxidative cleavage and subsequent cyclization mechanism is proposed.
