A green and facile route to gamma- and delta-lactones via efficient Pinner-cyclization of hydroxynitriles in water

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the presence of a recyclable cationic exchange resin hydroxynitriles smoothly undergo a Pinner cyclization/hydrolysis two-step reaction in pure water to give lactones in good to excellent yields.
