Microwave-assisted synthesis of deuterium labeled estrogen fatty acid esters.


Deuterated analogs of estrogen fatty acid esters are needed as internal standards for isotope dilution GC/MS analyses. We have developed a rapid and efficient synthesis for 2,4,16,16-D4-estrone palmitate, stearate, oleate, linoleate, and linolenate and the corresponding 2,4,16,16,17alpha-D5-estradiol fatty acid 17-mono and 3,17-diesters using analogous… (More)
