( 4) Manufacture of L-citronellol from optically energetic pinene. Hydrogenate α- or β-pinene to acquire (-)-cis-pinene, which is changed by thermal breaking right into (+)-3,7-dimethyl-1,6-octadiene, which can be incorporated with triisobutylaluminum or diisobutylaluminum The activity of isobutylaluminum hydride, and then the produced light weight aluminum alkoxide is oxidized and hydrolyzed to obtain citronellol with a purity of 97%.
