The selective dehydrogenation of the eudesmanolide α-santonin and its alkylation with the introduction of an allyl fragment into its γ-lactone ring are described. It has been established that these reactions are regio- and stereo-selective. The structures of the compounds obtained were determined from their IR, UV, PMR, and mass spectra.
