BENITES, JULIO; LOPEZ, JOSE; FARIAS, JORGE G. y CORTES, MANUEL. THE PREPARATION OF OXYGENATED DERIVATIVES OF AMBROX AND ISOAMBROX FROM DRIMENOL. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2006, vol.51, n.3, pp. 979-981. ISSN 0717-9707. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072006000300011.
The preparation of oxygenated derivatives of ambrox and isoambrox is described. The compounds 8á-hydroxy-isoambrox, 7β-hydroxy-isoambrox, 8á-hydroxy-ambrox, 7β-hydroxy-ambrox, 7-oxo-isoambrox and 7-oxo-ambrox have been synthesized from (-)-drimenol, readily available from the bark of Drimys winteri. The structures of the products were determined mainly by spectroscopic methods
