Towards ‘bio-based’ Nylon: conversion of γ-valerolactone to methyl pentenoate under catalytic distillation conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Methyl pentenoate, a promising Nylon intermediate, is produced in >95% yield via the transesterification of γ-valerolactone, a bio-based intermediate, under catalytic distillation conditions.
