Dear Dr.Sweeney

Two simultaneous mechanisms are proposed in the last figure of your poster.
Concerning the first I would like to make two questions:

1. If you use O(18)-labeled water, where do you expect the O(18) atom to be
incorporated: in the hydroxyl or in the ester group?

2. Didn't you ever detect the 2-acetoxy-3-hydroxy product?

Best regards,

Jo=E3o Aires de Sousa.
