Free-radical addition of primary alcohols toα-olefins
- 24 Downloads
The synthesis of a series of secondary alcohols has been carried out by the addition of C5–C10 primary alcohols to C6 – C13 α-olefins. The reaction initiator was t-butyl peroxide.
The optimum conditions for this reaction are: temperature, 140– 160°; time, 3–6 hours; molar ratio alcohol: olefin: peroxide=20 ∶ 1 ∶ 0.3.
