Cathodic carbonylation of 1-halogenopentanes


Reaction conditions for electroreductive conversion of 1-halogenopentane into hexanal using [Fe(CO)5] have been investigated in detail. The use of acetonitrile as solvent containing tetraalkylammonium halides or toluene-p-sulfonate and a divided cell gave good results. Under the conditions, the best results were obtained with the bromide as starting halide.
