Retinoic acid underwent autoxidation in 90% ethanol at 25-85.5 °C to give epoxides, dioxetanes, an endoperoxide, and double-bond cleavage products. The majority of these products appear to have resulted from the initial direct oxidation of the olefinic carbons rather than from the expected allylic α oxidation process.
