Abstract

The alkylation of l- and d-menthyl valerate with n-hexyl iodide and with (20S)-20-iodomethyl-4 alpha-methyl-5 alpha-pregnane gave modest levels of diastereoselection. The chirality of the ester group favoured slight degree of selectivity. The chiral centers had limited impact on diastereoselectivity.
