Abstract

The reactions of alkenes with aldehydes under varying conditions of catalysis, temperature, and pressure have been found to yield a wide variety of useful synthetic organic chemicals. Formaldehyde, the most reactive aldehyde with alkenes, has been studied in the greatest detail; the first work being done by Kriewitz in 1899. He heated alkenes with paraformaldehyde and ethyl alcohol in a sealed tube at 170-175o, obtaining unsaturated alcohols.
