The sexual pheromones (Z)-9-dodecenyl acetate (IXa) and (E)-9-dodecenyl acetate (IXb) were synthesized using facile preparation of the acetylenic precursor, 9-decyn-1-ol (IV), from tetrahydrofurfuryl chloride (I). Hydroxyl groups of intermediates in the subsequent steps were protected by the ethoxyethyl group.
