Mono-ozonolysis of dienes in methanol gave in each case the corresponding unsaturated hydroperoxy acetals. The reaction of the hydroperoxides with ozone in the solvent system such as AcOH-CH2Cl2 resulted in the production of the corresponding hydroperoxy (or hydroxy)-substituted 1,2-dioxanes or 1,2-dioxepanes in good yield. By the treatment of the derived products with TMSOTf-Et3SiH, replacement of the methoxy (or hydroxy) group by hydrogen was accomplished.
