Mn(OAc)(3) mediated alpha'-acetoxylation of alpha,beta-unsaturated enones is reinvestigated from a synthetic and mechanistic point of view and an improved procedure based on the use of acetic acid as a co-solvent is presented. Excellent results were obtained for a variety of structurally diverse and synthetically important enones under the optimized conditions. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
