  1. So to be clear, you want to sell it?
  2. I would do a proper work up and run NMR before you call it a total failure. You should also monitor with TLC during the reaction so you can have some idea of what’s going on.
  3. Have you done any sort of crude work up or purification? Did you monitor with TLC at all?
  4. I see no reason why not. It should be pretty easy to look up an exact procedure as it’s not an overly complicated molecule.
  5. We've recently had a few posts by newer members asking for advice and expert input on ideas they are unwilling to disclose publicly for reasons of IP protection. Staff feel that this goes against the spirit of this forum as a place for open discussion, and we have therefore updated the rules under Section 2 to include the following:
  6. What do you think the answer might be? Have you gone through each of them?
  7. You won't get the ester. You have an acid and a base, you're just going to get deprotonation. You need an acid catalyst to get the ester.
  8. ! Moderator Note If we could all kindly return / stick to the topic of this thread, it would be appreciated.
  9. ! Moderator Note One thread per topic please. See your previous thread here:
  10. Does the carbonate dissolve when you add it to the reaction? I am not familiar with its solubility in DMA or DMF. If not, perhaps you could consider adding crown ether or switching to Cs2CO3? The latter is reasonably expensive, but if you have it on hand it might be useful.
  11. ! Moderator Note Do not copy paste entire articles. If you wish to make a point using them, quote relevant sections and cite where you got them from. Also, mod notes are not open for conversation within the thread. If you have a problem with one, report it or PM staff.
  12. ! Moderator Note Since the OP hasn't come back with anything to back up their wild claims, I am closing this.
