Abstract: Efficient methods for dioxirane-based selective C-H bond oxidation by supramolecular control in H 2O have been developed. With β-cyclodextrin as the supramolecular host, site-selective oxidation of the terminal over the internal tertiary C-H bond of 3,7-dimethyloctyl esters 3a-c was achieved. In addition, β-cyclodextrin selectively enhanced the C-H bond oxidation of cumene in a mixture of cumene and ethyl benzene in H 2O. Through 1H NMR studies, the selectivity in C-H bond oxidation could be attributed to the inclusion complex formation between β-cyclodextrin and the substrates.
