The derivatization of methyl ricinoleate followed by ring-closing metathesis (RCM) or sequential RCM/hydrogenation and RCM/cross-metathesis lead to a variety of biosourced compounds of interest for fine chemistry and polymer synthesis. 3,6-Dihydropyran, and α,β-unsaturated lactone derivatives have been prepared with concomitant production of polymer precursors. Tetrahydropyran and lactone derivatives as well as valuable monomers in particular polyamide precursors have also been prepared.
