Description

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.
