In the second step, the enolate acts as a nucleophile in an SN2 reaction to form a new C-C bond: Step 3: Acidic Ester Hydrolysis Next step 3 , acid and water are added to perform the aqueous hydrolysis of the ester to a carboxylic acid.

However, upon acidification the mixture will lose a molecule of carbon dioxide to get decarboxylated to give ketones as well. This will be further explained with the mechanism. Mechanism of Acetoacetic Ester Synthesis Step 1 In the presence of mild base such as NaOH or NaOEt, the alpha — hydrogen of the beta-keto ester can be abstracted to produce the carbanion which can resonate to form an enolate.

Since the enolate can resonate on either side of the ester and the ketone it is more stabilized and hence use of even mild bases can be made for this reaction. Abstraction of alpha-proton yields a carbanion which is stabilized by enol formation through resonance on either side of beta keto ester Carbanion quickly resonates to form enolates on either side Step 2 and Step 3 The enolate carbanion thus formed is capable of attacking the alkyl halide R-X as the halide is a good leaving group.

This yields the mono-alkylated beta-keto ester i. However, reaction does not stop there. Since the base and alkyl halide are present in the same solution, step 1 and 2 can repeat in step 3 to produce the disubstituted beta-keto ester ii.

Note — For step 2 the carbanion shown below can exist as enolates in resonance structures as shown above — hence it can be shown using the illustration below or using enolates but with proper arrows indicating movement of electrons.

Attack of the enolate on the alkyl halide R-X to yield mono- and di- alkylated beta keto ester Step 4 Upon acidification of the solution the esters can undergo hydrolysis to yield the acid. Note — this reaction can happen with both mono as shown as well as di-substituted beta keto ester not shown.

Basic conditions force ester hydrolysis and yield carboxylates. Step 5 Under acidic conditions and slight heating the beta-keto carboxylate can undergo a loss of carbon dioxide to yield either mono as shown or disubstituted not shown ketone. Under acidic conditions the carboxylic acid can loose one molecule of carbon dioxide to yield the alpha-alkyl ketone. Disadvantages Like Malonic Ester Synthesis — acetoacetic ester synthesis is also non-selective and gives low yield for one single product as it can form a plethora of products.

This non-selective nature of acetoacetic synthesis can be used to produce cyclic products. Also O- vs C- alkylation competition also exists. By Francis A. Carey, Richard J. Sundberg Organic-Chemistry.

Malonic Ester Synthesis

What is the usage of diethyl malonate in organic synthesis? Diethyl malonate, a colourless, fragrant liquid boiling at C, is prepared by the reaction of monochloroacetatic acid with methanol, carbon monoxide or by the reaction cyanoacetic acid the half nitriled-malonic acid with ethyl alcohol. What acids are contained in soft drinks? Pressured soft drinks contain at least carbonic acid bubbling, about 0. Depending on the flavor, citric acid fruity can also be added; malonic, tartaric and lactic acid are other examples sometimes used. Phosphoric acid is only allowed in brown colored coke.
