Effects of ultrasound on the formation of alpha-benzoylbenzyl cyanide from benzyl cyanide and alkylphenyl ketone from alpha-alkylbenzyl cyanide by potassium superoxide in the presence of crown ether.

Abstract

Ultrasound accelerates the formation of alpha-benzoylbenzyl cyanide and benzoic acid in the reaction of benzyl cyanide with potassium superoxide in the presence of 18-crown-6. Similarly, 4-methylbenzyl cyanide, 4-methoxybenzyl cyanide and 4-chlorobenzyl cyanide gave the corresponding alpha-(4-methylbenzoyl)-4-methylbenzyl cyanide, alpha-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-4… (More)
