Abstract

Type II photooxygenation (singlet oxygen) is described as a synthetically useful way for the preparation of allylic hydro­peroxides and endoperoxides using sensitizer-adsorbed or covalently sensitizer-doped polymeric (macro- or nanosized) containers. Facilitated product separation and purification as well as increased reactivity are advantages of these techniques in comparison with solution-phase photochemistry. The products generated by Type II photooxygenation have been used for the syntheses of numerous polycyclic peroxides with a common 1,2,4-trioxane core as exhibited in the natural antimalarial artemisinin.
