We synthesized a novel compound, 5-(6-hydroxy-6-methyl-5-oxoheptan-2-yl)-2-methylphenyl acetate, in a good yield by oxidation of 1-O-acetyl-xanthorrizol using potassium permanganate in acidic condition. The structure was elucidated by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), 1 H-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and 13 C-NMR, two-dimensional (2D)-HSQC, Distortionless Enhancement by Polarization Transfer (DEPT), 2D-Heteronuclear Multiple Bond Correlation (HMBC), and High-Resolution Mass Spectra (HRMS) spectral data.
