NMR shift values indicate that geraniol has an E-conformation and nerol a Z-conformation. Thus, the shift reagent, tris(dipivalomethanato)-europium(III), is added to solns. of geraniol, nerol, geranyl acetate, and neryl acetate in CCl4 and the shift values of the C-4, C-5, and C-10 protons are examd. The opposite conformational assignments made by F. H. A. Rummens (1965) are discussed. [on SciFinder (R)]
