Abstract

(+)-Faranal 1a, the trail pheromone of Pharaoh's ant, and its congener, (+)-13-norfaranal 1b were synthetized from chiral building block 4 employing diastereoselective carbon-carbon bond formation. The application of crude pig liver esterase enzyme for the preparation of 4 is also discussed.
