Description

General description

Hydrocinnamaldehyde is C=C double bond hydrogenated cinnamaldehyde. It has been synthesized by the selective hydrogenation of C=C double bond of cinnamaldehyde by various methods. Hydrocinnamaldehyde and nitromethane undergoes Henry reaction to form nitroaldols. The C1 and C3 position labelled with 13C of hydrocinnamaldehyde was subjected to mass spectrometry and the fragmentation pattern was elucidated.

Application

Hydrocinnamaldehyde may be used in the synthesis of the following:
• 2-Chloro hydrocinnamaldehyde by α-chlorination.
• Mixture of homopropargyl alcohols by kinetic resolution-allenylboration reactions.
• Mixture of syn- and anti-β-hydroxyallylsilanes by hydroboration of allenylsilane.
• (2S)-2-Hydroxy-4-phenylbutanenitrile by catalytic asymmetric cyanosilylation.
• Cinnamaldehyde by dehydrogenation reaction using Pd(TFA)2/4,5-diazafluorenone catalyst.
