From Carboxytelomerization of 1,3-Butadiene to Linear α,ω-C10 -Diester Combinatoric Approaches for an Efficient Synthetic Route.

Two novel reaction pathways were tested to synthesize the linear α,ω-C10 -diester exclusively from three basic reagents: 1,3-butadiene, carbon monoxide and methanol. Therefore, carboxytelomerization of 1,3-butadiene and methanol was merged with methoxycarbonylation in two different ways to obtain highly linear C10 -diester. Through a palladium-based and… CONTINUE READING
