Solvent-Free Synthesis of Jasminaldehyde Via Liquid Phase Condensation of Benzaldehyde and 1-
Heptanal at 433 K Is Investigated, With a Focus on the Catalytic Activity of Fe-Zn Double Metal Cyanide
Catalysts. Under Ideal Reaction Circumstances, 1-Heptanal Is Converted to Jasminaldehyde With a Selectivity
Of 77. Condensation Is Facilitated In Fe-Zn Double Metal Cyanide Because to the Presence Of
Coordinatively Unsaturated Zn2+ In the Framework of the Compound. Selectivity of Jasminaldehyde Was
Investigated By Varying the Complexing and Co-Complexing Agent, Catalyst Amount, Benzaldehyde to 1-
Heptanal Molar Ratio, and Temperature.
