Abstract

The pyrolytic reactions of tetramethylethylene oxide, cyclopentene oxide, cyclohexene oxide, cyclooctene oxide, 1,2-epoxyethylbenzene, 1,2-epoxy-2-phenylpropane, 1,2-epoxy-1-phenylpropane, and 1,2-epoxy-1,2-diphenylethane were investigated at 600 degrees C using a conventional pyrolysis flow system. The products are mainly due to thermal cleavage of the oxirane ring followed by rearrangement to give carbonyl compounds.
