Additional Information: Terpenic hydrocarbons are abundantly available in nature and the corresponding oxygenated derivatives like alcohols, esters, carbonyls, ethers are important flavor chemicals. The synthesis of newer oxygenated-derivatives of monoterpenes is apparently an important field of synthetic organic chemistry. The strategy for obtaining relatively expensive oxygenated-derivatives from the inexpensive hydrocarbons, via reactive intermediates like epoxides, alkyl halides and to a lesser extent from halohydrins, is well employed in the synthesis of several aroma chemicals. However, preparation of the oxygenated derivatives of monoterpenes still has a vast scope in terms development of mild, easy, chemo-, regio-and stereoselective synthetic methodologies. Although bromohydrin intermediates of monoterpenes have been known for quite some time, their application with special reference to the preparation of oxygenated derivatives needs to be further explored. In the present investigation, special emphasis has been given to developing newer strategies for trans-β-terpineol, and its alkoxy derivatives. The main objectives of the study were, development of new and improved method for the functionalization of hydrocarbon to its alkoxy ether by dehalogenation of corresponding hydroxy and alkoxy derivative respectively. A special emphasis has also being given to retain stereospecificity of the starting halohydrin.
