Enzymatic acetylation of (+/-)-gamma-cyclohomogeraniol[2-(2',2'-dimethyl-6'-methylenecyc lohexyl)ethanol] with vinyl acetate in the presence of lipase AK yielded the acetate of its (R)-isomer, leaving its (S)-isomer intact. The (S)-isomer was chemically converted to (S)-gamma-coronal[2-methylene-4-(2',2'-dimethyl-6'-methylenecyclohexy l)butanal], the ambergris odorant.
