A Stereoselective Synthesis of (Z,Z)-3,13-Octadecadien-1-yl Acetate, and Its (E,Z)-Isomer, the Sex Pheromone of the Cherry Tree Borer, Synanthedon hector Butler
Suk-Ku Kang*, Sun-Ku Park
A mixture of (Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-yl acetate(1) and its (E,Z)-isomer(2), the sex pheromone of the cherry tree borer, Synanthedon hector Butler was synthesized. (Z)-11-Octadecen-1-al(3) was prepared from 1,10-decandiol. The Wittig reaction the above aldehyde3 with carboethoxymethylenetriphenylphosphorane, or the Wadsworth-Emmons reaction of the above aldehyde3 with the anion of triethylphosphonoacetate gave ethyl (Z,Z)-2,13-octadecadienoate and its (E,Z)-isomer. Deconjugative protonation of ethyl (Z,Z)-2,13-octadecadienoate and its (E,Z)-isomer with potassium hexamethyldisilazide followed by aqueous ammomum chloride work-up afforded stereoselectively ethyl (E,Z)-3,13-octadecadienoate and its (Z,Z)-isomer, respectively, of which stereoselectivity was adjusted to give the product in the required ratio. Exposure of the above deconjugated ester to excess lithium aluminium hydride resulted in formation of the penultimate (Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-ol and its (E,Z)-isomer. Acetylation of the desired alcohols afford the final products, (Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-yl acetate(1) and its (E,Z)-isomer(2).
