A new stereospecific epoxidation with the α-azohydroperoxide (1) is reported. α-Azohydroperoxides (1a - 1d) epoxidized cis- and trans-stilbenes stereospecifically in the reaction catalyzed by pyridine or sodium hydroxide. Similarly, cyclohexene, norbornylene, and cis-β-methylstyrene all were epoxidized by 1a - 1d in good to high yields in basic media. Reactive species of the epoxidation are discussed.
