Selectivity and Mechanism of Thermal Decomposition of β-diketones on ZnO Powder.


The thermal chemistry of β-diketones underlies a number of catalytic processes related both to the catalytic reactions yielding commodity chemicals and to the production of supported transition metal catalysts themselves. The mechanisms of decomposition during thermal transformation of three β-diketones, acetylacetone (acacH), 1,1,1-trifluoroacetylacetone… (More)
