Longifolene in Prins reaction with formaldehyde yielded the expected ω-acetoxymethyl longifolene, which was transformed into a number of interesting derivatives. Configuration of the Prins product has been arrived at by NMR measurements. The UV absorption of these derivatives show a considerable bathochromic shift with respect to those in the camphene series and this could be attributed to the slight twisting of the ethylenic linkage in longifolene and its derivatives.
