Synthesis of β-diketones and acetylenic ketones from ethers of tertiary diacetylenic alcohols

  • 37 Accesses


  1. 1.

    To prevent the formation of dihydrofurans when diacetylenic carbinols are hydrated it is recommended to replace the alcohols by either their ethers or esters.

  2. 2.

    Depending on the reaction conditions, the hydration of the ethers of tertiary diacetylenic carbinols can be directed toward the formation of either theβ-diketones or acetylenic ketones.
