Indene epoxidation is an important step in the synthesis of indene derivatives. This review is focused on various methods of 1,2-epoxyindane preparation. A wide range of oxidation agents (such as H2O2, organic hydroperoxides, NaIO4) and of catalysts, mostly organometallics based on Mn, Ti, Co, Re can be used for indene epoxidation.
