Evidence is obtained for the unprecedented cis-1,2-hydroxy-acetoxylation of olefins as minor products of the epoxidation of olefins by H2O 2 that is catalyzed by nonheme iron complexes in the presence of acetic acid, providing further support for the previously proposed [(TPA)Fe V(O)(OAc)]2+ oxidant.
