Friedel Crafts Acylation of Unsaturated Fatty Acids

Friedel-Crafts acylation is another method for functionalization of unsaturated fatty acids. Friedel-Crafts acylation of alkenes are induced by Lewis acids like AlCl3, SnCl4 or ZnCl2; the acylation often leads to a mixture of b,y-unsaturated ketones, a,b-unsaturated ketones and b-cholro ketones. The EtAlCl2-induced acylation of oleic acid with acetyl chloride produces a mixture with approximately similar quantities of 9- and 10-regioisomers as adducts with the yield of about 55% (Fig. 11.10) [81].
