Green epoxides! A novel and simple ionic liquid/manganese acetate catalytic system has been developed for the rapid and selective oxidation of aliphatic terminal alkenes to epoxides. It provides an efficient, reusable, and scalable protocol for the green synthesis of epoxides from various aliphatic terminal alkenes. KGaA.
