Abstract

The corresponding dialkyl ethers of 3-methylsulfolane-2,3-diol are formed by the action of alcohols (methanol, ethanol, n-propyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, isobutyl alcohol, and n-octyl alcohol) on 3-methyl-2,3-epoxysulfolane in an acidic medium. The reaction proceeds through the intermediate formation of monoethers with subsequent etherification of the hydroxyl group by a second molecule of alcohol.
