Preparation and Attempted Resolution of Benzoyl-Malic Acid


Wisegarver, Burnett Blanchard (1926) Preparation and Attempted Resolution of Benzoyl-Malic Acid. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/NWAK-8C64.


The final object of this research was to prepare m-nitrobenzoyl malic acid and to separate it, if possible, into the four stereoisomers predicted by the Huggins' theory of the benzene ring. Inasmuch as the quantity of m-nitro-benzoyl chloride available was limited it was thought better to first prepare i-benzoyl malic acid and then attempt to resolve it. The resolution of m-nitrobenzoyl malic acid could probably be accomplished by a similar method.
