We described the unusual results of manganese(III) acetate based tandem oxidation of various alpha and beta-alkoxy alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones to afford the corresponding alpha'-acetoxy-alpha'-phenyl substituted oxidation products in good yields. The tandem oxidation to monoacetoxylation ratio can be tuned by the amount of manganese(III) acetate. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
