Abstract

Conditions for the preparation of 3,3,6,6-tetramethyl-1,4-dioxane-2,5-dione by condensation of 2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanoic acid in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid were found. It is shown that the lactide obtained is readily hydrolyzed to 2-(2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanoyloxy)-2-methylpropanoic acid.
