A synthesis of twelve heteroanalogues II-XIII of the plant growth stimulator 1-triacontanol (I), derived from the parent alcohol by a replacement of 1-4 methylene units by heteroatoms O, S, NH and/or by a replacement of 1-2 ethylene units by -CO-O-, -CO-NH- or epoxy groups is reported. Spectral and gas-chromatographic properties (Kováts retention indices) of the compounds are described.
