Synthesis of 2-Nitrobenzaldehyde in the Presence of Ionic Liquids
A method for synthesizing of 2-nitrobenzaldehyde from 2-nitrobenzyl alcohol using ionic liquids (ILs) has been developed. The conversion of 2-nitrobenzyl alcohol and the selectivity of 2-nitrobenzaldehyde in the ionic liquids are higher than those in the traditional dichlorethane solvent. In addition, a reaction mechanism for the oxidation of 2-nitrobenzyl alcohol to 2-nitrobenzaldehyde is proposed.
