Preparation of iso propyl retinoate and ethyl retinoate

Indian Journal of Chemistry Section B Organic Chemistry Including Medicinal Chemistry 15(7): 665-666
Preparation of iso propyl retinoate and ethyl retinoate
Isopropyl retinoate is used for the treatment of human skin disorders (acne, seborrhea, pruritis, etc.). A simple method for the preparation of isopropyl retinoate and ethyl retinoate from retinol in high yields was reported. The method involved oxidation of retinol by a mixture of NaCN, AcOH and MnO2 to give retinoic acid which was esterified in situ by ethanol or propanol used as a solvent.
