Sustainable production of pyromellitic acid with pinacol and diethyl maleate

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein, we report an unprecedented and sustainable route to synthesize pyromellitic acid (PMA), a monomer of polyimide, with pinacol and diethyl maleate which can be derived from lignocellulose. Analogously, a sustainable route to trimellitic acid (TMA) was also developed using pinacol and acrylate as the feedstocks.
