Allylic amines ( as their protonated ammonium salts) can be epoxidised with high syn diastereoselectivity and regioselectivity at the proximal alkene in substrates with several double bonds using Oxone. The protonated ammonium cation activates the Oxone by hydrogen bonding, thus promoting the oxidation of groups within the vicinity of the complex.
