Abstract: Abstract The 4‐Hydroxy‐2,6‐dioxabicyclo(3,3,0)Octan‐8‐one[1S,4S,5R], monoketone, is obtained by catalytic oxidation of isosorbide—or 2,6‐dioxabicyclo(3,3,0)4,8‐octandiol[1R,4S,5R,8R]—in an aqueous solution with a stream of oxygen and in the presence of a platinum on carbon catalyst. Setting up sequentially two experimental designs made it possible to study the three main factors which influence the monoketone formation in the case of two reactors of different size and profile. Optimisation of selective and/or…
