Abstract

A method for producing 2-substituted glycerols having various levels of hydroxy group protection by opening dihydroxyacetone dimer in a nonaqueous, non-protic environment with a composition that initially protects both of the liberated 1,3-dihydroxy groups to form di-ether containing ketone monomers which can then be conveniently subjected to ketone addition reactions and standard chemical functional group manipulations.
