Title Industrially feasible preparations of methyl 9(R)-hydroxy and methyl 9-oxostearate from Dimorphotheca seed oil
Author(s) Tassignon, P.S.G.; Wit, D. de; Buyck, L.F. de
Source Industrial Crops and Products 4 (1995)2. - ISSN 0926-6690 - p. 121 - 125.
Department(s) Agrotechnological Research Institute
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 1995
Abstract Optimized procedures are described for the synthesis of methyl 9(R)-hydroxyoctadecanoate (2) and methyl 9-oxo-octadecanoate (3) based on Dimorphotheca pluvialis seed oil. Simple countercurrent separation and Oppenauer oxidation (benzoquinone, aluminum t-butoxide) were applied to prepare 2 and 3 in more than 90% yield. The procedures are potentially applicable on industrial scale and well suited for upgrading aged oils.
