Heterocyclic tertiary amines, such as pyridine, strychnine, sparteine, nicotine, cinchonine, cinchonidine, quinine and quinidine were found to be excellent initiators for the oligomerization of chloral and bromal. Treatment of the chloral oligomer mixture with acetic anhydride gave symmetrical chloral oligomer diacetates. Sparteine initiation of bromal gave bromal oligomer diacetates.
