Article title

New transformation of cycloalkanone acetals by peracids α,ω-dicarboxylic acids synthesis


Title variants

Languages of publication



A new process of oxidation of cycloalkanone acetals under the action of in situ generated performic acid has been found. The main products of the reaction are α, ω-dicarboxylic acids obtained with the yield up to 77% depending on the size of acetals ring. The process has been explored and optimized on the example of the dodecanedioic acid synthesis (a valuable industrial product).
