We did not use myo-inositol or d-chiro-inositol alone because we decided to administer inositol complying with a proportion that should reflect the natural balance among the two stereoisomers.
Linalool is 95% R, 5% S in enantiomeric configuration, and the lilac compounds are dominated by 5'R stereoisomers (see Dotterl el al.
In order to determine the absolute configuration at C-3 and also at C-13 of (1'S)-10, we synthesized all of the four stereoisomers of 10 employing the olefin cross metathesis reaction between the enantiomers of A and those of B.
In homogeneous medium, both acids give terminal double bond hydrogenation, producing the [alfa] and [beta] methyl position stereoisomers, favoring the [beta] isomer, probably due to less steric hindrance during the Ru metal [pi] complex formation.
