On the other side, 2-ethylhexanol is industrially produced through three consecutive reaction processes such as, propylene hydroformylation to n-butyraldehyde, n-butyraldehyde self-condensation, and typical aldol condensation reaction, which can be catalyzed by an acid, a base, or an acid-base bifunctional catalyst, to give 2-ethyl-2-hexenal, and a hydrogenation, catalyzed by the supported Cu or Ni catalysts, of this last compound to give 2-ethylhexanol [21].
The last method used the classical aldol reaction to couple acetylferrocene with two different aromatic aldehydes.
In fact, there is a cross-linking reaction and the formation of a Schiff base (imine) by one glutaraldehyde molecule with one amino group, enhancing its aldol condensation with other glutaraldehyde molecules.
