  • Patent number: 11548846
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a novel method of preparing 8-methyldecanal, a flavor and fragrance material. Specifically, starting from cheap and readily available material 6-chloro-1-hexanol, first, the hydroxyl group was protected with dihydropyran catalyzed by para-toluene sulfonic acid to produce 6-chloro-hexyl tetrahydropyran ether. Then 6-chloro-hexyl tetrahydropyran ether reacted with magnesium turnings to form a Grignard reagent and reacted with 1-bromo-2-methyl-butane under the catalysis of cuprous bromide to give the intermediate 8-methyl-sunny tetrahydropyran ether. Without purification, crude 8-methyl-sunny tetrahydropyran ether was treated under acidic conditions to remove the protecting group to generate 8-methyl-1-decyl alcohol. Finally, 8-methyl decanal was obtained after oxidation with 2, 2, 6, 6-tetramethylpiperidinyloxy.

  • Patent number: 11512035
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for forming oxygenates from olefins which includes hydroformylation of aldehydes as a formyl source alternative to syngas. In at least one embodiment, a hydroformylation process is performed at low-temperature and at or near ambient pressure for the conversion of olefins into aldehydes, thus reducing the formation of by-products such as via double bond or skeletal isomerization of the feedstock; or via further conversion of the formed aldehydes and alcohols. In at least one embodiment, the use of gaseous olefinic products (e.g., ethylene) instead of strained olefins (e.g., norbornene) improves the control equilibria in transfer hydroformylation reactions.
