Environmentally friendly and straightforward methods for creating biofuels are required to promote biofuel use. Therefore, we present here a convenient and environmentally friendly direct self-aldol reaction of acetaldehyde in 100 mM borate buffer (pH 10) affording the dimer of 3-hydroxybutanal with a good yield. The product can be easily converted into 1,3-butanediol and its benzoate; therefore, our results will have a positive impact in the field of biochemical production from ethanol. View Full-Text
