Herein we disclose a novel application of the oxone–acetone combination for the Wacker-type oxidation of indenes and dihydronaphthalenes leading, respectively, to indan-2-ones and 2-tetralones. The amount of the base employed in the reaction seems to switch the reaction path from dioxygenation to Wacker-type oxidation. Control experiments suggest that the reaction is not proceeding via the epoxide route and also that there is no role of trace amounts of metals present in the reagents on the current oxidation.
