Abstract

Brønsted base-assisted boronic acid catalysis for the dehydrative self-condensation of carboxylic acids is described. Arylboronic acid bearing bulky (N,N-dialkylamino)methyl groups at the 2,6-positions can catalyze the intramolecular dehydrative condensation of di-and tetracarboxylic acids. This is the first successful method for the catalytic dehydrative self-condensation of carboxylic acids.(Figure Presented)
