Synthesis of ethoxyacetaldehyde, and its chemical reactions

  • 22 Accesses


  1. 1.

    A convenient method for the synthesis of ethoxyacetaldehyde was developed.

  2. 2.

    Ethoxyacetaldehyde readily undergoes the usual reactions of aldehydes. Some of its acetais, its cyanohydrin, and the product of its condensation with 2-propyn-1-ol were prepared for the first time.
