- ... 13-Aminotridecanoic acid, the monomer for nylon 13, was synthesized from commercial erucic acid or its derivatives by several methods in a study to determine the method of choice, which involved oxidative ozonolysis of eruconitrile, followed by esterification before isolation to give methyl 12-cyanododecanoate. The cyano ester was then catalytically reduced and hydrolyzed, without isolation of int ...
