Rule bt0073

[Pathway Prediction Engine] [All Rules List] [BBD Main Menu]

Pattern 3591
2-unsubstituted Cyclic ether -> 2-Hydroxy cyclic ether


Aerobic Likelihood:              Neutral

EAWAG-BBD Reaction(s):
1,4-Dioxane -----> Dioxanone (reacID# r1571)
Endosulfan ether -----> Endosulfan hydroxyether (reacID# r1413)
Tetrahydrofuran -----> 2-Hydroxytetrahydrofuran (reacID# r0017)

Comments:
If both carbon atoms adjacent to the ether oxygen are unsubstituted, hydroxylation will occur on the carbon with the most positive charge. This rule will produce cis products in rings with double bonds and is blocked from acting on epoxides.

Similarities:
bt0242: secondary Aliphatic --> secondary Alcohol
