Application

(R)-(+)-β-Citronellol can be used to prepare:
  • (R)-(+)-β-citronellyl acetate by treating with vinyl acetate via trans esterification reaction using immobilized Rhizomucor miehei lipase as biocatalyst.
  • (R)-(+)-citronellal and (R)-(+)-citronellic acid by the oxidation reaction.
  • Citronellol aziridine by treating with 2,2,2-trichloroethoxysulfonamide by intermolecular olefin aziridination.

It can also be used as a starting material for the synthesis of (+)-integerrinecic acid lactone.
(R)-(+)-β-Citronellol can undergo:
  • Oxidation to form (R)-(+)-citronellal, an antifungal agent and (R)-(+)-citronellic acid.
  • Intermolecular olefin aziridination with 2,2,2-trichloroethoxysulfonamide to form citronellol aziridine for ring-opening reactions.
  • Series of reactions to form α2δ-ligands for treating generalized anxiety disorder and insomnia.
