Abstract

In 2010, Horiuchi, et al. (Nature 2010, 463, 789-792) reported that croconic acid was a ferroelectric material at room temperature. Ferroelectrics have the potential to be used for applications such as non-volatile memory (Ferro-RAM) and capacitors. The purpose of this project is to synthesize croconic acid and salts of croconic acid with the intent of discovering new ferroelectric compounds. Spectra, both NMR and IR, were obtained and utilized to confirm the identity and purity of croconic acid. Ultimately, croconic acid was prepared in three steps with an overall yield of 2%.
