The conditions for oxidizing methyl isopimarate to the 15-oxo-15,16-dihydroisopimarate were studied. The latter was used for one-pot syntheses of 13-(oxazol-5-yl)-15,16-bisnorisopimarates that included formation of the 16-oxoaldehyde isopimarate and its condensation with α-amino acids. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by IR, UV, and NMR spectral data and an XSA.

The work was financially supported by grants of the RFBR Nos. 15-03-06546 and 17-43-543235 (p_mol_a). Analytical and spectral studies were performed at the Chemical Service Center for Collective Use at NIOCh, SB, RAS. We thank E. G. Zhizhin and Yu. A. Rodikov for supplying the heteropolyacid-based oxidizing systems.
