Re2O7 is a mild and efficient catalyst for the high-yielding condensation of 1,1-dihydroperoxides with ketones or aldehydes to form 1,2,4,5-tetraoxanes. When applied in tandem with a Re(VII)-catalyzed synthesis of 1,1-dihydroperoxides, the reaction provides a high-yielding one-pot conversion of ketones or aldehydes to tetraoxanes.
