Conversion of nitroalkanes into carboxylic acids via iodide catalysis in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a new method for the conversion of nitroalkanes into carboxylic acids that achieves this transformation under very mild conditions. Catalytic amounts of iodide in combination with a simple zinc catalyst are needed to give good conversions into the corresponding carboxylic acids.
