Table 1 The effect of groups on the yield

From: A novel synthesis method of cyclopentadecanone and cyclopentadecanolide from vegetable oil

Ester groups Yieldsa of cyclopentadecanone (%)
methyl 32.7
ethyl 38.5
propyl 31.1
butyl 21.0
typical synthetic route 12.8
  1. aIt is the yield calculated based on 15-tetracosenic acid as raw material
