Abstract
The stepwise reduction-oxidation method has been successfully applied to conversion of carboxylic acid salts to the corresponding aldehydes. Thus, both sodium and lithium salts of carboxylic acid were readily converted to aldehydes in essentially quantitative yields by stepwise treatment with borane and dimethyl sulfate, and followed by oxidation with PCC. Alternatively, the treatment of acid salts with two equivalents of borane in THF, and followed by the oxidation also provided the same results.
