Cross metathesis approach to C11-C13 fatty-chain amino esters from oleic acid derivatives

Download pdf
Abstract/Description: A concise method of producing nylon 11, 12, or 13 precursors from oleic acid or an ester of oleic acid is described. The method involves cross-metathesis reactions as the key C-C bond formation step. Subsequent steps are provided to convert the metathesis product to the corresponding nylon precursors. Also provided are the products of the method.
