Acetals, ketals & ortho esters compounds


What is an Acetal? Acetals, usually derived from aldehydes, are two single-bonded oxygen atoms attached to the same carbon atom, with the hemiacetal being an alcohol and ether attached to the same carbon atom.

What is a Ketals? Ketals are equivalent to acetals and contain a carbon bonded to two O-R (R = alkyl group).

What is a Ortho esters? Ortho esters contain three alkoxy groups (an alkyl group linked to an oxygen) attached to one carbon atom. Acetals are stable under basic conditions, can be hydrolyzed back to the carbonyl compound, can serve as a carbonyl protecting group, and are functional groups in glycosidic bonds.

Cyclic acetals are utilized as biomaterials in tissue engineering.

Poly(ortho esters) exhibit synthetic versatility and applicability as matrices for drug delivery systems and as micelles.
