Abstract: This paper supplies an overview of latest progress in structural features and catalytic performance of the catalysts for aldol condensation reaction between acetic acid (methyl acetate) and formaldehyde to synthesize acrylic acid (methyl acylate),mainly including V-P-O,alkali metal/alkaline earth metals and ionic liquids catalysts.It is pointed out that the development of new type catalysts is the core technology for the synthesis of acrylic acid (methyl acylate) via aldol condensation route.
