Abstract

Two β,γ-disubstituted δ-valerolactones 2 and 3 were synthesized starting from (R)-(+)-limonene. The most significant conformations for each lactone were determined by molecular mechanics calculations; then the 1H-NMR coupling constants for each pair of vicinal hydrogen atoms of the lactone rings were calculated through suitable Karplus equations. Comparison of experimental and calculated coupling constants allowed the assignment of the vicinal stereorelationship between the β and the γ substituents in 2 and 3.
