Prof. Dr. Taslim Ersam MS.


Abstract

Synthesis of myristicyl ethanoate from myristicin aldehyde has been done. The synthesis was performed in two steps, reduction and synthesis of myristicyl ethanoate. Sodium borohydride reduction of myristicin aldehyde gave myristicyl alcohol, which on reaction with ethanoyl chlorides afforded myristicyl ethanoate in 74.8% of yields.
