The hitherto unknown (+/-)-4-methoxydecanoic acid was synthesized in six steps and in 25% overall yield starting from commercially available 4-penten-1-ol. The title compound demonstrated seventeen fold higher antifungal activity (MIC = 1.5 mM) against Candida albicans ATCC 60193 and Cryptococcus. neoformans ATCC 66031 when compared to unsubstituted n-decanoic acid. Our results demonstrate that Mid-chain methoxylation appears to be a viable strategy for increasing the fungitoxicity of fatty acids.
