Juniperic acid, the representative component of the estolide-type waxes of Coniferae, and several analogous compounds were prepared by the anodic synthesis. Juniperic acid was obtained from dimethyl thapsiate, which started from methyl hydrogen azelate, through methyl hydrogen thapsiate and ethyl 15-methoxycarbonyl-pentadecanthiol oate. Thapsic acid and 1, 16-hexadecanediol were prepared from dimethyl thapsiate. 1, 12-Dodecanedioic acid was prepared by mixed Kolbe electrolysis of methyl hydrogen sebacate and methyl hydrogen succinate. 1, 12-Dodecanediol was obtained by reduction of dimethyl 1, 12-dodecanedioate with lithium aluminum hydride. The purity of these synthesized acids was fairly high and the acids were considered to be very significant in the study of wax components of conifers.
