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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
