Coumarin analogue synthesized via Knoevenagel Condensation
« on: November 29, 2009, 09:01:16 PM »
In the lab I mixed 4-(diethylamino)salicylaldehyde with Ethylacetoacetate and Piperidine. I'm aware that the Knoevenagel Condensation and transesterification occurs but I am having trouble figuring out the mechanism of the reaction. Could someone maybe start me on the right track of what this mechanism would look like?

You know the names of the reactions, looking them up should be pretty straightforward.

My research: Google Scholar and Researchgate
