Summary

  1. 1.

    Vapor phase conversion of mesityl oxide and diacetone alcohol was studied over tricalcium phosphate.

     
  2. 2.

    It was shown that like H+ and OH ions, calcium phosphate selectively catalyzes the reaction of vapor phase hydrolytic cleavage of mesityl oxide into acetone.

     
  3. 3.

    It was found that dealdolization of diacetone alcohol proceeds more completely and under more mild conditions over this catalyst than does the hydrolytic cleavage of mesityl oxide.

     
  4. 4.

    The results of our work indicate that both in homogeneous catalysis and over a solid catalyst, the hydrolytic cleavage of mesityl oxide proceeds through a hydration step which limits the overall rate of the process.
