- General
THF was distilled from sodium-benzophenone ketyl, CH 2 Cl 2 was distilled from calcium hydride, and DMF was distilled from and stored over molecular sieves. All other reagents and solvents were obtained from commercial sources and were generally used without further purification. Column chromatography was carried out on silica gel (300-400 mesh). 1 H NMR spectra were recorded at 500 MHz, 13 C NMR spectra were recorded at 125 MHz, using TMS as internal standard. Mass spectroscopy data of the product were collected on a MS-ESI instrument.
- Synthesis of dimethyl 5-hydroxy-1, 3-benzenedicarboxylate 1
To a stirred mixture of 5-hydroxyisophthatic acid (9.10 g, 0.05 mol) and methanol in an ice-salt bath was slowly added a catalytic amount of sulfuric acid (3 mL). After addition, the reaction mixture was stirred in an ice-salt bath for 0.5 h, then at room temperature for 1 h, and was refluxed for 5 h. After it was cooled to room temperature, the reaction mixture was neutralized with aqueous sodium carbonate solution and then acidified by concentrated hydrochloric acid. Water was added and the resulting mixture was extracted with dichloromethane to give a white solid. Crude dimethyl 5-hydroxy-1, 3-benzenedicarboxylate 1 was recrystallized from methanol. Yield 10.10 g (84%). 1 H NMR (500 MHz, CDCl 3 , TMS): δ 8.25 (s, 1 H, Ph-H), 7.79(s, 2 H, Ph-H), 6.49(s, 1 H), 3.95(s, 6 H, -OCH 3 ). MS (ESI): m/z 241 ([M+H] + ).
