Abstract

Deoxydehydration (DODH) reaction has the potential to be a sustainable method for the production of chemicals. Finding alternatives to produce chemical feedstock is essential to preserving the limited fossil resources that are available and for ensuring chemical supply beyond their depletion. The deoxydehydration reaction is catalyzed by transition metal catalysts and requires the use of a reducing agent. Molybdenum is currently being studied for its chemical similarities to the widely used but less abundant rhenium to make catalysts for DODH reactions. This work explores the synthesis of asymmetric ligands derived from aminebisphenolates and the influence it would have on the DODH reaction. The synthesis of the asymmetric ligand was achieved in four synthetic steps. Characterization of the ligand by 1H NMR spectroscopy confirms its asymmetric nature when compared to its symmetric counterparts.
