N-Methylmorpholine N-(17O-oxide) and N-methylmorpholine 15N-(17O-oxide) were prepared from N-methylmorpholine and 15N-methylmorpholine by oxidation with H2 17O2. The facile one-pot procedure provided yields of 82 and 76%, respectively. The labeled hydrogen peroxide was obtained by electrolysis of H2 17O followed by autoxidation of 2-ethylanthraquinol with the molecular oxygen 17O2 generated. The compounds serve for mechanistic studies into gold nanoparticle generation in NMMO solution.
