Abstract: Fatty acids of the n-3 and n-6 families containing a photoactive conjugated tetraene group near the carboxylate were prepared from several naturally occurring fatty acids by sequential iodolactonization and treatment with excess 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene. The new conjugated fatty acids include 5E,7E,9E,11Z,14Z- and 5E,7E,9E,11E,14Z-eicosapentaenoic acids derived from arachidonic acid; 5E,7E,9E,11Z,14Z,17Z- and 5E,7E,9E,11E,14Z,17Z-eicosahexaenoic acids from eicosapentaenoic acid; and 4E,6E,8E,10Z,13Z,…
