Cyclization of some linear terpenols initiated by “activated” DMSO
- 51 Downloads
It was shown that the acylhydroxysulfonium salt generated in situ from DMSO and trifluoroacetic anhydride causes low-temperature cyclization of geraniol, linalool, and nerol in an aprotic medium to a mixture of p-menthane monoterpenoids, and the maximum yield is obtained in the case of the last two terpenols. A similar result was obtained for E-nerolidol.
