The formation of p-toluic acid from coumalic acid: a reaction network analysis

Diels-Alder cycloaddition of biomass-derived 2-pyrone coumalic acid (CMA) with propylene provides an alternative pathway to produce toluic acid (TA), a precursor to terephthalic acid (TPA) which is a key component in the manufacture of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
