How we can prepare alkene from dicarboxylic acids ? Kolbes’s electrolysis

No comments

In this reaction the decarboxylation of dicarboxylic acids take place .

The potassium salts of dicarboxylic acid give alkene as the COO- group is removed as CO2 , this leads to the formation of double bond between two adjacent carbon atoms.
