Asymmetric synthesis of (−)-(R)-massoia lactone, (R)-δ-decalactone, and (+)-(3R,5R)-3-hydroxydecano-5-lactone. Formal synthesis of verbalactone



A simple and efficient procedure for the asymmetric synthesis of (−)-(R)-massoia lactone, (R)-δ-decalactone, and (+)-(3R,5R)-3-hydroxy-1,5-decanolide is described. Verbalactone was synthesized using Heck allylation at the key stage of construction of the carbon skeleton.
