The reactivity of the biobased chemical levulinic acid with dimethylcarbonate as a solvent/reagent under basic conditions is here described. The reaction yields methyl levulinate and dimethyl succinate, along with products that derive from methylation of the aliphatic chain and the dimethylketal of methyl levulinate. A degree of control over selectivity can be achieved by tuning the reaction conditions.

Abstract

The reactivity of the biobased chemical levulinic acid with dimethylcarbonate as a solvent/reagent under basic conditions is here described. The reaction yields methyl levulinate and dimethyl succinate, along with products that derive from methylation of the aliphatic chain and the dimethylketal of methyl levulinate. A degree of control over selectivity can be achieved by tuning the reaction conditions.
