Abstract:

Procedures for the synthesis of apical mono-, di-, and tricarboxylic acids of triamantane, [121]tetramantane, and [1(2,3)4]pentamantane, apical diacetic acids of diamantane and triamantane, as well as medial propionic acids of diamantane and triamantane were elaborated starting from the corresponding alcohols and bromides. The obtained diamondoid acids were characterized as their methyl ester derivatives.
