General description

Pentadecanolide (PDL) is a 16-membered ring lactone. Its anionic polymerization by employing potassium alkoxides as initiator has been reported. It has been reported as a potential selective inhibitors of rat liver cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (cAK) [IC50 value = 20μM]. Synthesis of PDL in overall yield of 60%, using 2-nitrocyclododecanone as starting reagent, has been described.

Application

Pentadecanolide may be used for the synthesis of poly(pentadecanolide) (PPDL) by Novozyme 435 catalyzed ring-opening polymerization. It may be employed as starting reagent for the synthesis of terminally-branched iso-fatty acids (iso-C15-C17).
