Abstract

Bismuth subnitrate has been found to be an excellent catalyst for acetalization and ketalization of a wide range of aldehydes and ketones with diols under mild conditions. The catalyst remained in solid form throughout the reaction and could be readily reused and recycled without any loss of activity. It is deduced that the excellent performance of bismuth subnitrate may be ascribed to its acidity.
