What are some ways acetic anhydride can be produced?
Nov 24, 2015
- Dehydration of two equivalents of acetic acid removes OH from one and H from the other and combining the two.
- trifluoro peroxoic acid inserts an oxygen in between the two carbonyls preferentially (least recommended)
- Acyl chloride as electrophile, carboxylic acid as nucleophile.
