The continuous self aldol condensation of propionaldehyde in supercritical carbon dioxide: a highly selective catalytic route to 2-methylpentenal

Author affiliations

Abstract

The aldol reactions of propionaldehyde and butyraldehyde have been explored in supercritical CO2, scCO2, using an automated continuous flow reactor. The reaction was found to proceed over a variety of heterogeneous acidic and basic catalysts and with increased selectivity compared to using neat reactants.
