CO2-assisted synthesis of non-symmetric α-diketones directly from aldehydes via C–C bond formation

Author affiliations

Abstract

CO2-assisted various symmetric and non-symmetric α-diketones have been synthesized directly from the corresponding aldehydes using transition metal-free catalysts. This method can even be applied to synthesize pharmaceuticals directly from aldehydes. The crucial role of CO2 has been investigated in detail and the mechanism is proposed on the basis of experiments and DFT calculations.
