1,2-Diol Formation via Osmium Tetraoxide Synthesis

ORGO2-Q6N1QR

Diol is an organic compound that has 2 ${-OH}$ groups. 1,2-diols can be formed if an alkene is treated with Osmium tetraoxide ${OsO}_{4}$, followed by oxidation with hydrogen peroxide ${H}_{2}{O}_{2}$. This reaction is an example of syn-hydroxylation.
