What are Acetals and Ketals?

Acetals and ketals are important functional groups that find use in the preparation of novel heterocyclic compounds, in polymers and in the protection of carbonyl compounds or alcohols.

Acetals and ketals are stable under basic conditions but hydrolyze easily under acidic conditions to the starting carbonyl compound and alcohol. A few examples of the variety of acetals and ketal offered by Eburon Organics are listed. However the scope of preparation of acetals and ketals is unlimited at Eburon Organics.
