Alkene Reactions 2

Carbene Additions
Addition of bromoform in the presence of sodium hydroxide results in the formation of a carbene which reacts with the double bond to form a cyclopropane ring.

Epoxidation
Addition of a peroxyacid to an alkene results in an epoxide.

Ozonolysis
Addition of ozone to an alkene results in oxidative cleavage, the alkene breaking open to the ketone (or aldehyde).

Oxidative Cleavage by Permanganate
The oxidative cleavage by permanganate is almost identical to ozonolysis except that it is a stronger oxidizer and will oxidize aldehydes to carboxylic acids.
