Abstract

Mercuric acetate catalysed one pot Claisen rearrangement of the cinnamyl alcohol Image , generated the pent-4-enal Image , which on homologation resulted the hex-5-enal Image . Radical cyclisation of the radical anion derived from Image , followed by oxidation provided the ketone mixture Image , a known precursor to the sesquiterpenes (Image )-α-cuparenone (Image ), (Image )-epilaurene (Image ) and laurene (Image )
