Radical-chain deoxygenation of tertiary alcohols, protected as their methoxymethyl (MOM) ethers, using thiols as polarity- reversal catalysts.
The deoxygenation of tertiary alcohols can be accomplished by heating their MOM ethers in the presence of a peroxide initiator and a thiol catalyst: the proposed radical-chain mechanism is supported by EPR spectroscopic studies
