This project examines a number of aspects of the development of products for application in industry. This project consists of three parts. The first part investigated optimising an industrial process leading to (S)-4-benzyloxazolidin- 2-one (1). This study has secured a protocol which allows its preparation in high yield and at lower cost. The second part is concerned with the development of a cheap method to access pheromones containing diene, triene and tetraene groups, using acetal (58) derived from the ozonolysis of cyc1onona-l ,4,7 -triene. The third part of the study entails the use of the same Z,Z,Z-cylonona-l,4,7-triene to synthesize novel bis and tris-cyc1ic allenes with eleven and twelve membered rings.
