Part 1. The absolute stereochemistry of the proton at C8 in desoxyrosenono- and rosenono-lactone has never been defined unambiguously, although rosololactone has been shown to possess an 8alpha hydrogen from X-ray analysis of dibromorosololactone. From direct correlation with rosololactone, by way of acetate pyrolysis and with the assistance of gas liquid-mass spectrometric analysis, the proton at C8 in rosenono- and desoxy-rosenono-lactone is assigned an alpha configuration, and hence isorosenono-lactone an 8beta configuration.
