The absolute configuration
of the C-15 secondary alcohol in 1 was deduced via the CD data of the in situ formed [[Rh.sub.2][(OCOC[F.sub.3]).sub.4]] complex with acetonide 1a (Figure 3).

(3) In order to study the significance of chirality in pheromonal communications, the first thing to do was to determine the absolute configuration
of the naturally occurring pheromone.

However, the absolute configuration

was determined by comparison of the specific optical rotation with literature [ref.
VCD is used to determine the absolute configuration
of chiral molecules.
In addition, the relationship between absolute configuration
and sperm-releasing bioactivily in Laminaria, Alaria, Undaria, and Macrocystis was clarified in bioassays with lamoxirene stereoisomers.
