(+/-)-Mintlactone has been synthesized by applying a novel effective synthetic sequence. 4-Methylcyclohexanone was subjected to acetoxylation with Pb(OAc)(4). Hydrolysis followed by reaction with 2-chloroprogionyl chloride,then treatment with triethyl phosphite and, finally, Horner-Emmons-type intramolecular cyclization afforded (+/-)-Mintlactone.
