The photosensitized oxidation of cyclopropenes 5a-c proceeds rapidly, producing a plethora of products whose formation can be understood in terms of secondary rearrangements of initially formed products hydroperoxide 24 and epoxide 29. However, the reaction does not involve singlet oxygen but is rather a free-radical process.
