Dye-Sensitized photo-oxidation of Squalene in methanol-benzene (1:4) have been investigated with a view to obtaining allytic alcohols through an ene-type reaction. These allylic alcohols can be of significant because t h ey can undergo cyclizations to give ring systems as has been demostrated by many other polyene chains with allylic alcohol functions. Furthermore, since Squalene, through Squalene-2, 3-epoxide, is the precursor in the biosynthesis of cholesterol it may therefore be possible for the allylic alcohols thus obtained to undergo biomimetic polyene cyclizations to give some forms of natural ring systems.
