    • Abstract

       

      α-Artostenone has been prepared directly from Jack fruit gum by saponification using sodium methoxide in cold methyl alcoholic solution. In preliminary tests α-artostenone enol-benzoate was found to yield α-artostenone under these conditions. Thus the conclusion that α-artostenone occurs in the plant in the form of enol-wax-esters is confirmed.
