A facile and efficient method for the preparation of 1, 1-diacetates of aldehydes is improved.
P2O5/SiO2 catalyzed 1, 1-diacetates formation from aldehydes in dry media. Advantages of this method
are the use of an inexpensive and selective catalyst with high yields in simple operation and short
reaction time under solvent-free conditions.
