To make a comparative study of the connection between odor and structure in the alkyl-γ-butyrolactone and alkyltetrahydrofuran series, α-,γ-, and α,γ-dialkylbutyrolactones are hydrogenated over copper-chromium catalyst to give the corresponding tetrahydrofurans. Most of the compounds obtained retain a fruity odor, reminiscent of that of the starting lactones.
