A predominant pathway of xenobiotic-induced toxicity is initiated by bioactivation. Characterizing reactive intermediates will provide information on the structure of reactive species, thereby defining a potential bioactivation mechanism. Because most reactive metabolites are not stable, it is difficult to detect...

A three-step synthesis of (R)-(+)-4-methylcyclohex-2-ene-1-one (1) from (R)-(+)-pulegone (3), proceeding in 44% overall yield, is described. The sequence comprises vinyl triflate formation, site-selective ozonolysis, and reduction. The route requires only one chromatographic purification and provides a convenient method to access...
