Benign approaches for the synthesis of bis-imine Schiff bases

van den Ancker, Tania R. and Cave, Gareth W. V. and Ralston, Colin L. (2006) Benign approaches for the synthesis of bis-imine Schiff bases. Green Chemistry, 8 (1). pp. 50-53. ISSN 1463-9262


Pure bis-imine Schiff bases are readily accessible in high yield, typically >95%, when aliphatic diamine/aldehyde condensation reactions are carried out under solvent-free
conditions or in poly(propyleneglycol) (PPG) as a recyclable reaction medium, with negligible waste.
