What's Going On in Hydroxyselenation of Acetoxycyclohexene?

A pseudo axial conformation for the reactant would therefore give an all trans product.

In fact, the observed product is the cis 2-hydroxy-3-acetoxy system. We conclude that the pesudo-equatorial conformer is therefore more reactive.

Once again, therefore the pseudo equatorial conformer is more reactive. However, there is no face selectivity in selenenylation.

We suggest there are two reactions occuring, at roughly the same rate.
