Selective monomethyl esterification of linear dicarboxylic acids with bifunctional alumina catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

An environmentally friendly protocol for the selective protection of dicarboxylic acids is reported using methanol as a cheap esterifying agent and alumina as a heterogeneous catalyst; the selectivity of the process has been ascribed to a balanced acidity/basicity of the bifunctional alumina catalyst.
