Several studies describing the synthesis of 1-triacontanol have appeared following the report that application of 1-triacontanol (1̲), an active constituent of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), increased the yields of tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, rice, corn and several other crop species. We detail here a convenient synthesis of 1-triacontanol, and the salient feature of this synthesis is that these reactions are inexpensive, simple and amenable to multigram synthesis.
