Abstract

A new catalytic system using the combination RuCl2(DMSO)4/CH3CH 3COONa/DMSO/carboxylic acid which enables selective dimerization of acrylonitrile to linear dimers without formation of propionitrile as a byproduct has been developed on the basis of a new working hypothesis of the desirable reaction mechanism involving protonolysis of a C-Ru bond in the intermediate.
