The Stereochemistry of the Tetrabromides From Linoleic Acid
Australian Journal of Chemistry
48(8) 1495 - 1501
The stereochemistry of the crystalline 9,10,12,13-tetrabromostearic acid obtained by bromination of linoleic acid has been established by X-ray crystallograpic analysis. The structures of the corresponding oily tetrabromide , and of the two derived 1,8,9,11,12-pentabromoheptadecanes, follow.
