The alcohol first reacts with o-nitrophenylselenocyanate and tributylphosphine to a selenide in a nucleophilic substitution on electron deficient selenium. In the second step the selenide is oxidized with hydrogen peroxide to a selenoxide in which elimination takes place with expulsion of a selenol in a fashion similar to that of the Cope elimination.
