Influence of the methyl group in isoprene epoxides on reactivity compared to butadiene epoxides: Biological significance.

Hence, hydrolysis of ethenyloxirane occurs by hydrolysis of ethenyloxirane in a 3:1 ratio at C-2 and C-3, without a single S N 1 component. In a 2:1 mixture of the E- and Z-isomers of 4-hydroxy-2-en-1-ol and 27% of a 2:1 mixture of the 4-hydroxy-2-methyloxygenyl-2-en-1-ol, 23%, and 27 percent of a 2:1 mixture of 4-hydroxy-2-methyloxirane. Both C-2 and C-3 of the oxirane revealed diasterolomeric adducts from Sn's S N 2 attack of the vain amino acid, with l-valine methyl ester. C-2 in neutral polar media or in C-3 in basic media, while ethenyl-2-methyloxirane derivatives were exposed on acetate and C-3 fronts, whereas ethenyloxirane derivatives were triggered by attack at both C-2 and C-3. Hence, the methyl group of isoprene has a small effect on the reactivity of its epoxides relative to those of butadiene and, thus, in the context of their toxicology, could contribute to crosslinking of nitrogen functions in biomolecules related to mutagenesis and carcinogenesis.
