Synthesis of 1,2-hexanediol
There are many routes for the synthesis of 1,2-hexanediol. The starting materials used are 1-hexene, acid anhydride, heterocyclic ring, ester, etc., but based on raw material sources, process conditions, environmental requirements and other factors, The most studied is the synthesis route of 1,2-hexanediol from 1-hexene.
There are many epoxidation methods for olefins, and the hakon method and the chlorohydrin method are relatively common methods. There are many catalysts used, and compounds such as Mo, Ti and W are commonly used. For the epoxidation of 1-hexene, there are several possible methods depending on the oxidant: 1. alcohol epoxidation; 2. organic peroxygenation algorithm 3. H2O2 oxidation; 4 oxygen oxidation；5.organic Oxide method.
