(+)-3-Carene as a source of new compounds with olfactory properties. Part 1. Gem-dimethylbicyclo[3.1.0]hexane derivatives
Pollena 41(9): 382-388
The synthesis of new gem-dimethylbicyclo[3.1.0]hexane derivatives with various substituents at the C-2 and C-3 positions are described. Using the standard methods of side chain elongation, alcohols, esters, ketones, nitriles and other derivatives possessing interesting olfactory properties were obtained. Odour characteristics and odour-structure relationship are presented.
