Abstract

(w - 1)-Fluoroalk-(w - 1)-enoic acids of chain lengths C5-C15 were prepd. by consecutive bromofluorination and dehydrobromination of either alk-(w - 1)-enoic acids or alk-(w - 1)-enyl acetates, in the latter case followed by oxidn. The halogen increases the antimyotic properties of the unsatd. fatty acids, 10-fluoroundec-10-enoic acid exhibiting a particularly strong fungicidal activity. [on SciFinder (R)]
