Meldrum's acid Specification

Meldrum's acid , its cas register number is 2033-24-1. It also can be called 2,2-Dimethyl-1,3-dioxane-4,6-dione; 2,2-Dimethyl-4,6-dioxo-m-dioxane; 2,2-Dimethyl-m-dioxane-4,6-dione; Isopropylidene malonate; m-Dioxane-4,6-dione, 2,2-dimethyl-; 1,3-Dioxane-4,6-dione, 2,2-dimethyl- ; Malonic acid, cyclic isopropylidene ester (8CI). It is a brown white solid. Meldrum's acid  is an intermediate for different organic syntheses. It is an important intermediate in syntheses of vitamins B1 and B6, barbiturate, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, other numerous pharmaceutical, agrochemical and flavor & fragrance compound. As an alternative to its original preparation, Meldrum's acid can be synthesized from malonic acid, isopropenyl acetate, and catalytic sulfuric acid.
