Abstract

The major product from the acid-catalyzed reaction of isopropenyl stearate with diethyl malonate is identified as the a-pyrone, 6-ethoxy-3-hexadecyI-4-stearoyloxy-2H-pyran-2-one. Alcoholysis of the 6-alkoxy a-pyrone proceeds unusually easily without requiring catalysis. Acetoacetic ester and 3-oxoglutarate esters react analogously with isopropenyl stearate to form a-pyrones.
