Synthesis of furan-3-carboxylic and 4-methylene-4,5-dihydrofuran-3-carboxylic esters by direct palladium iodide catalyzed oxidative carbonylation of 3-yne-1,2-diol derivatives.


A variety of 3-yne-1,2-diol derivatives 1, bearing a primary or secondary alcoholic group at C-1, have been efficiently converted into high value added furan-3-carboxylic esters 2 in one step by PdI(2)/KI-catalyzed direct oxidative carbonylation, carried out in alcoholic media under relatively mild conditions (100 °C under 40 atm of a 4/1 mixture of CO and… (More)
