The product formamides were obtained in high to excellent yields (83-95%) within 4-80 min.
It worked and the chemical reaction transformed the CO2 into two reduced forms of carbon, formate and formamides (two kinds of solar fuel) and in the process cleaning the air.
The chemical reaction changed carbon dioxide into two reduced forms of carbon, formate and formamides, which are both types of solar fuel, while also cleaning the air.
The olefinically unsaturated monomer corresponds to one or more monomers selected from at least one olefinically unsaturated monomer selected from the group consisting of: a) mono- and di-esters of crotonic acid, cinnamic acid, fumaric acid, maleic acid, citraconic acid, and itaconic acid; b) carboxyfunctional monomers; c) N-vinyl caprolactam, vinyl phosphonates, N-vinyl formamides, N-vinyl acetamides, hydroxypropyl acrylates and methacrylates, monoacrylates and monomethacrylates of polyalkylene glycols, acrylates, methacrylates, acrylic acid and methacrylic acid amides containing amine groups; d) vinyl esters corresponding to general formula (I) CH2xCH--O--C(O)--R1, with R1=C11-21.
Reaction conditions to synthesize formamides from amines change into mild conditions with low reaction time when this catalyst is used, and the yield of the reaction increases as well.
Recently, we developed an accelerated procedure for the synthesis of formamides and successfully used it for the synthesis N-(4-chlorobenzyl)-formamide.
The Leuckart reaction is a fast and convenient method of synthesis of various formamides and amines and has been successfully used for the synthesis of many biologically active compounds, including agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Formamides are a novel group of fungicides discovered by Bobylev et al at the All-Union Research Institute of Plant Protection Chemicals, Moscow, Russia.
It was the first example of an amide other than formamide produced in the Leuckart reaction.
Amides such as urea (7), formamide (1), and ethylenebisforma-mide (8) promote the plasticization of starch too.
Results: The reaction was fully completed in 10 minutes and produced N-[1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethyl] formamide in good yield.
