Abstract

The synthesis of enantiomerically enriched 7- and 8-hydroxy-stearic acids (7- and 8-HSA) has been successfully accomplished starting from chiral nonracemic 1-pentadecen-4-ol and 1-tetradecen-4-ol, respectively. Their Yamaguchi's esterification with 4-pentenoic and 5-hexenoic acids, respectively, afforded the suitable dienic esters which were submitted to ring-closing metathesis reaction. After hydrogenation and basic hydrolysis of the complex reaction mixture, chiral nonracemic 7- and 8-HSA were obtained in about 40% total yield.
