    The mixture of (d,l) and meso-13,16-dimethyl octacosanes was obtained from hexane-2,4-dione by reaction with the Grignard reagent from 1-bromododecane, and hydrogenolysis of the di-tertiary diol. This was compared by mass spectrometry (identical ms) and gas chromatography (co-elution on two capillary columns of the kerogen-derived hydrocarbon with the more volatile isomer).Google Scholar
