Abstract:

The role of beta gamma unsaturated fatty acids has become significant in the biochemistry of plants and microorganisms. Bloch and co-workers have also shown the importance of trans-3-decenoic acid as a key intermediate in the synthesis of unsaturated fatty acids via the anaerobic pathway. It was therefore of interest to prepare a series of labelled beta gamma unsaturated fatty acids for various biosynthetic studies. The synthesis of these acids is shown. Author
