Abstract

The geometries of the carbonyl oxides produced during ozonolysis of E- and Z-vinyl ethers have been assigned using the intramolecular trapping method. The alkoxy substituent exerts an anti-directive effect on formation of the carbonyl oxide; that is, the carbonyl oxide has a geometry opposite to that of the precursor vinyl ether.
