The question of which oxidizing agent is most suitable for hydroxyethyl-TDP revolves around the chemical nature of the group being oxidized and the anticipated chemical properties of the desired product, acetyl-TDP. The hydroxyethyl group in hydroxyethyl-TDP is the only alcoholic group in the molecule, so an oxidizing agent selective for alcohols would be the reagent of choice. Like the 2-acetyl-3,4-dimethylthiazolium ion, acetyl-TDP could be expected to be labile to hydroxide-catalyzed hydrolysis but would be stable in acidic solutions.

When used in acidic solutions, the acetyl-TDP produced is stable enough to be purified and characterized (14). Synthetic acetyl-TDP exists in aqueous solutions as a mixture of the three forms shown in Figure 5, a hydrate, the dehydrated acetyl form, and an internal adduct with the 4-amino group of the pyrimidine ring. This mixture was characterized by its 1H NMR spectrum, which showed three sets of resonances for the three forms (14). The equilibrium between the internally cyclized form and the dehyro form was pH dependent because of the ionization of the pyrimidine ring, and this pH dependence introduced a transition step in the pH rate profile for hydrolysis.
