In order to explain this discrepancy, an intramolecular rearrangement would already have been carried out by Stmm during the cyclization In the synthesis of positionally inconsistent assumptions for the purpose of comparison with the unknown connection and clarification of the institute, it should be mentioned that attempts to switch to a positionally inconclusive affair in the case of cyclic acidification are to be taken from the result of this work. The Abbuversuhe resulted in the connection made by Stmm and Dtt un ghi a ß Methy l is phenylbutyrlktn. ONLY spectra show that with this representation two geometric ismers arise in a smaller ratio than with the synthesis. ) O.A. Stmm, PhD student, sel 957 2) H.H.sshr, Clb AS, sel

9 THEORETICAL PART I. Overview of the chemistry he substituted ^ functions I.l. Properties of the links The links represent stable neutrals, and their neutralization with the hydroxy fatty acids we prefer to each other conversion. In a typical solution, the link ring can be opened with the help of a phyrxyrbxylts, which s builds back on acidification. These properties can be used to purify the skin by taking it in an aqueous rium hydroxyl solution, an excess of n rium hy rxy falls with Khlenixy and is filtered after it is filtered off. saponified; The rectin curve corresponds to that of a five-chain ester (A, 2Uehnismus).

10 3 The sterling influence of the substituents in, ß and Jf position helps to express itself. The results correspond to our knowledge of steric influence 6) in the saponification of esters after. 2Mehnlsmus. The saponification swirls are sufficient to allow them to be titrated climetrically. With an excess of alklihyrxy, the equilibrium between XLktn and JfHyrxycrbxylt is completely settled on the side of it, and excess alkali can be titrated back. In extreme cases and in the case of vermins, any excess of mineral acid can be isolated in the free oxyric acid (see, for example, thyryxy! fmethyl! fnphthylbutyric acid). Traces of a mineral acid suffice to initiate the solution. In addition to clear saponification, it can also be opened by mineral acids. There is always the risk that when using hydrogenated acid, the XHyrxyl group nucleophile is covered by a membrane (2), as shown by Pttisn and Suners in the case of ß, (i Dinethylbutyrlktm CH3CH3ÇCHH2 Ç2H3).

14 7 Apparent energy consumption in oil, ß, ß-unsaturated acids by the boyhood is less than the energy gain by cylisation of ß, 0-unsaturated acids. The similarity between allylacetic acid and 60% sulfuric acid results in the following formula (6) .2223 CH2 = CHCH2CH2COOH * CH3CH CH2 0 CH2 C 0, it is noteworthy that the theretically possible solution to a problem for phenol is completely absent. From these examples it can be seen that the position of the piling has no influence on the creation of joints. Aub, if it contains permanent doubling in a Hing (Cylhexenerlvt) st. We prefer to steer each 24) implementation. Two classic routes to the synthesis of compounds via unsaturated acids are, according to Jhnsn, modified methods of ethyl esters with a ketn, and the kenstin of a liphtic ketn (er Alehys) with trubic acid.

15 8 Based on examples, it can be shown that the rectin oil is subject to the formation of a thermodynamic effect on unsaturated crumbs. They strongly favored ring formation, in contrast to the fatty chain structure, at the same time reflects the minimal tension ratios in smooth ring systems such as cyclization of the XHyrxy and acidic acids . for synthesis The reactin of a fatty acid group in acid esters presents no experimental difficulties. The cytotoxic reaction with molecular hydrogen via nickel lysts leads to hydroxyesters. The reactin can be carried out with ambient coolant.303 An elegant method leads from the fatty acid ester to the corresponding can be achieved through the greenritin (7), which can be met if an additional substituent is required. The introduction of such a substance \ q \ w in the case of the inclusion of acid implies the destruction of the metal complex, ie the saponification of the ester grouping and the rectification. 28) L.

The derbzylation results in the (5-enzylbutyric acid (XV), lower IR spectrum, C, H analysis and equivlent weight determination of the compounds in the compound (XV). The further task now is to reduce the jfket group in (XV) selectively 87) to the secondary alcohol. The complex metals are able to reduce the individual chromium functions extremely specifically and in good yield. The literature on the usability of these complex complexes is very extensive.

Ntriumbrhyri proved its worth in our case, and the mineral acid used to destroy the excess Hyris led to the cylolysis of the Lktn (VI).

33 26 In the section it was pointed out that the fretric acids tend to lead to negative effects on pyrolysis 47). The ingenuities of a milene pyrolysis are also beautifully given by the distiller. The unchanged acid can be separated from the neutral solution by shaking with icrbnt and isolated again from a distillery. With ß (pmethxy) benzyl ttmethylpropinic acid (LVIl) we could actually do this. We isolated sweet, X-unsaturated liquors from a distillation of fatty acid. As expected, this showed in the I spectrum in addition to the Lk tnbne at 5.6 (* and also the absorbency of phenyl-conjugated doublings at 6.05p *. The greater tendency towards enlization in the case of phethxyerivt compared to the acid (XV) could be attributed to the extended youth system (22) (22> Influences on structure and rectity that were established by Knjugtin er mesmerie were very broadly examined and interpreted.

A slight difference between these two IR spectra could not be explained unequivocally. At this point it must be noted that the poor resolution of the spectra does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the structure. The CHanalysis (CiiHi6 2) un 8r xytive Abbu beier JfLktne (VA un VI) provided us with points of reference which allow us to ascribe the following structure to the reactin products: OH XLIV 2-methyllphenylbutnill, 4 (XLIV) was urh tsylation and subsequent distillation 3Methyl2phenyltetrhyrfurn (XLV) 6 transferred.

In both tests it is similar to a mixture of two compounds, which are present in a different relationship. On the basis of an xytlven figure, the two connections must have the same sequence of breaths via the same structure; they can only differ in their stereochemistry. The strong doublet at 9.3 t in spectrum C is attributed to the methyl group. The general shift of the sign to a higher field is due to the steric stabilization of the free rotation of the phenyl and methyl group in the knot belts of the two functions. One ls durh the methyl group over a phenyl ring to lie. The methyl particles are shielded by a stream of magnesium induced in the phenyl nucleus, which shifts their signals to a higher level. The same group is found, only in this case much weaker, also in the spectrum T, it must also be present in the case of the reuk tine product (i enzylbutyric acid (XV) at a 2) low percentage. 9) The two indices A and to mark the links were introduced from the beginning to indicate the institutional identity. 20) The NMR spectra were given by Dr. f. v.
