Epoxidation of taxinine J derivative (2c) with m-CPBA afforded a mixture of 4 Éø,20-epoxide (3), 4Éø,20 : 11β,12β-diepoxide (4) and 11 β,12β-epoxide (5). The proportion of the yields was dependent on temperature (3 : 4 = 80 : 10 at room temperature, 4 : 5 = 68 : 25 at 0-10°C). The reactions of derivatives of taxinine (2b) with m-CPBA and dimethyldioxirane (DMDO) were also investigated.
