General description

Mercury(II) acetate forms various addition compounds with olefins. Polarographic evaluation of these addition compounds has been proposed. It participates in the synthesis of nitrate esters, acetate esters, alcohols and ethers.

Application

Mercury(II) acetate may be used in the preparation of 2-benzylidene-3(2H)-benzofuran-3-ones (aurones).

It has recently been demonstrated that 4-deoxy-L-threo-hex-4-enopyranosyluronic acid ("hexeneuronic acid") is present in kraft pulps and linked to the xylan backbone. An analytical method for the quantitative determination of hexeneuronic acid groups has now been developed. The procedure involves a...
