Abstract

The solvolysis of 1,2-epoxydodecane in formic acid followed by saponification gave mainly 1,2-dodecanediol and a small amount of the isomeric 2,2'-dihydroxydidodecyl ethers. No products from a coil effect were isolated. The structure of the ether was demonstrated by oxidation and synthesis. Assignment of configuration to the isomeric ethers was made on the basis of the infrared spectra.
