Abstract

Olefins react with selenium dioxide-acetic anhydride reagent system to form acetoxyselenated compounds in fair yields which could be deselenised with Raney nickel to obtain the corresponding acetates. In one case the selenium product is resolved enzymatically to obtain optically pure sec. phenethyl alcohol.
