Abstract

The Perkin condensation most likely occurs via the initial formation of a gem-diacetate from the aromatic aldehyde and acetic anhydride reactants. The key reactive nucleophile appears to be the enolate of the gem-diacetate rather than of acetic anhydride. The diacetate from PhCHO may be converted to cinnamic acid under a variety of (relatively) mild basic conditions
