Synthesis of β-ketoesters from renewable resources and Meldrum's acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

β-Ketoesters are valuable building blocks for the synthesis of compounds with different biological activities. In this study, a series of fatty β-ketoesters were obtained from fatty acids and Meldrum's acid using N,N-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide and dimethylaminopyridine. In addition, we demonstrate for the first time the synthesis of new fatty β-ketoesters from oleic (cis-C18:1), elaidic (trans-C18:1), ricinoleic (cis-C18:1, 12-OH), linoleic (cis,cis-C18:2), and linolenic (cis,cis,cis-C18:3) acids in good yields.
