The enantiomers of racemic olive fly sex pheromone 1,7-dioxaspiro[5.5]undecane (1) have been isolated by crystallization with enantiospecific cyclodextrin hosts: (S)-(1) crystallizes with heptakis(2,3,6-tri-O-methyl)-beta-cyclodextrin (TMbetaCD) and (R)-(1) with hexakis(2,3,6-tri-O-methyl)-alpha-cyclodextrin (TMalphaCD). The crystal structure of TMbetaCD/(S… CONTINUE READING
