5-Methylene-1,3-dioxane-4,6-diones readily reacted with hydrogen peroxide without any catalyst and any bases to afford the spiro- and poryspirocyclic compounds containing an oxirane ring as crystalline products. Furthermore, the epoxidation of chiral 5-arylidene-1,3-dioxane-4,6-diones with hydrogen peroxide produced the two diastereomers whose purification by silica gel chromatography ensures 100% optical purity.
