The oxidation of olefins (alicyclic compounds and stilbenes) by permanganate ion is accelerated by electron-attracting substituents, but these groups retard the reactions of the olefins with osmium tetroxide. For the stibene oxidations, approximate ρ values obtained were: 0.65 for the permanganate reactions in aqueous dioxan and -0.55 for the osmium tetroxide reactions in dioxan.
