Green Solvent for the Synthesis of Linear α-Olefins from Fatty Acids

Hopen Eliasson, Sondre H. ; Chatterjee, Anamitra ; Occhipinti, Giovanni ; Jensen, Vidar R.


Whereas transition-metal-catalyzed decarbonylative dehydration of fatty acids shows promise as a more sustainable route to alpha-olefins, the solvents used for this process have so far been toxic compounds such as N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone and 1,3-dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2(1H)-pyrimidinone. Here, potential greener solvents are surveyed, using the well-defined precatalyst Pd(cinnamyl)Cl(DPEPhos) ...
