Abstract

Resistance to leaching and re-usability are characteristic of the novel heterogeneous Lewis acid catalyst that was prepared by anchoring tin(IV) chloride on silica grafted with tetraalkylammonium or pyridinium chloride groups. The catalyst displays high activity and selectivity in the synthesis of 3-methyl-3-buten-1-ol by the Prins condensation of isobutene with formaldehyde [Eq. (1)].
