Abstract: The title compounds have been synthesized starting from l-menthone by application of a ring-closing metathesis reaction to confirm their reported absolute and relative stereochemistry. Comparisons of the NMR spectra and specific rotations are also discussed.
Keywords: Calamenene; hydroxycalamenene; ring closing metathesis; absolute configuration; sesquiterpene
