Cyclization of ethers of geraniol and nerol

  • 116 Accesses

Summary

The cyclization of the ethers of geraniol and nerol under the influence of sulfuric acid or boron trifluoride leads to the formation of theα-cyclo derivative, independent of the configuration of the 6,7-double bond in the acyclic molecule, i.e., it is not stereospecific.
