ABSTRACT

The demonstration that both oxygen atoms of 1,7-dioxaspiro[5.5]undecane (1), the sex-pheromone of the female olive fly, originate from dioxygen, strongly implicates monooxygenase mediated processes in assembly of (1), and reveals unexpected complexity in the formation of its nine-carbon precursor.
