DUGGAN, Andrew R.; MCITEKA, Lulama P.; LOBB, Kevin A. and KAYE, Perry T.. 1H NMR-based kinetic-mechanistic study of the intramolecular trans-esterification of 2-exo-3-exo-dihydroxybornane monoacrylate esters. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.66, pp.00-00. ISSN 1996-840X.
A 1H NMR study of the acid-catalyzed, intramolecular trans-esterification between isomeric 2-exo-3-exo-dihydroxybornane monoacrylate esters has afforded insights into the reaction mechanism and permitted the determination of kinetic and thermodynamic parameters for the pseudo-first-order processes.
