(Chemical Equation Presented) Re2O7 in CH 3CN is a remarkably efficient and mild catalyst for the peroxyacetalization of ketones, aldehydes, or acetals by H2O 2 to generate 1,1-dihydroperoxides. Me3SiOReO3 and methyl rhenium trioxide (MTO) are also effective catalysts under these reaction conditions.
