practically instantaneously to give the corresponding oxiranes in high yields: for example, 1-dodecene 7 was converted into 8 in a yield of over 90%.
Conjugated enones, which are much more resistant to
epoxidation, undergo oxidation if the ratio of oxidizing
agent to alkene is increased from 1.2: 1 to 2.5: 1. Thus,
ethyl cinnamate 9 was converted into the corresponding
within one minute in 80% yield. Benzylideneacetone 11 and progesterone 13 underwent rapid epoxidation to give 12 (m.p.=45°C1"1) and 14 (m.p.= 177'C1'']),
respectively, in yields of 85% and 80%.

Acetonitrile is known to act as a carrier for an oxidizing
agent. It reacts with H 2 0 2 to form peroxyimidic acid 15,
an intermediate that has not been isolated, but which

~ ' ~ ~epoxidation reaction, however, usually requires several hours at elevated temperatures, and electron-poor olefins such as
enones d o not react.
Treatment of 1 with isopropylmagnesium chloride in
ether at -78°C results in the formation of a yellow compound [ M ~ i P r ( q ~ - c ~ 3,

above ca. - 10°C. The 'H-NMR spectra at various temperatures indicate that 3 contains an alkyl group having an
agostic hydrogen atom (Fig. l):I3] at - 120°C the three H
atoms of one of the methyl groups are magnetically inequivalent with the agostic H atom absorbing at 6= - 8.43. At
higher temperatures exchange of these protons occurs and
at - 50°C only one signal is observed (S= - 2.90). The second methyl group is not involved in this process (the associated doublet is sharp at all temperatures). Furthermore,
there is no evidence for transfer of the agostic H atom to
the metal-at least within the temperature range studied
(-30°C to - 120°C).
Since no oxidizing solutions are formed with fluorine
unless both CH3CN and H 2 0 are present, CH3CN must be
essential for the formation of the oxidizing agent. A crucial
step is presumably the formation of hypofluorous acid,
HOF,1'41which then reacts with CH3CN. The F2/CH3CN/
H 2 0 system offers promise as a useful method for fast,
low-temperature, high-yield epoxidations.
