Abstract

Cinnamic acids have been prepared in moderate to high yields by a new direct synthesis using aromatic aldehydes and aliphatic carboxylic acids, in the presence of boron tribromide as reagent, 4-dimethylaminopyridine (4-DMAP) and pyridine (Py) as bases and N-methyl-2-pyrolidinone (NMP) as solvent, at reflux (180-190°C) for 8-12 hours.
Keywords: Cinnamic acids; direct synthesis; boron tribromide/4-DMAP; activating agent. Cinnamic acids; direct synthesis; boron tribromide/4-DMAP; activating agent.
