Problem 36P

Predict the products of self-condensation of the following esters.

(a) methyl propanoate + NaOCH

(b) ethyl phenylacetate + NaOCH2CH3

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

Here we have to predict the products of self-condensation of the following esters

Step 1

In self-condensation reaction, a chemical compound containing a carbonyl group acts both as the electrophile and the nucleophile.

(a) methyl propanoate + NaOCH3

+ NaOCH3 

(Methyl propanoate)    (Sodium methoxide)                  (1-methoxypentan-1,3-dione)

Methyl propanoate on addition with sodium methoxide  undergoes self condensation reaction and forms 1-methoxypentan-1,3-dione.
