A 20 mL response flask equipped with a magnetic stir bar was charged with (methoxycarbonylmethylene)triphenylphosphine (502 mg), N-Octanal (133 mg) and water (5.0 mL) and the vial was capped. The vial was heated to 20 ° C at 1 environment and the reaction was maintained mixing for 2 hours. After the reaction, add dichloromethane to the response mix, essence the liquid stage with dichloromethane (3 The solvent was eliminated under reduced pressure. Detoxify the unrefined product using chromatography on a silica gel column (20% ethyl acetate/hexane) to acquire the target product particle.

Octanol or octanoic acid can be used as basic materials. Octanol is oxidized in the presence of copper-chromium driver to create octanal. There are numerous methods of producing octanoic acid making use of octanoic acid, such as blending octanoic acid vapor with excess formic acid vapor and using titanium oxide or manganese oxide catalyst at 300 ° C to produce octanal with a return of 90%.
