- ... 9-Aminononanoic acid was prepared from soybean oil by a four-step process. Alcoholysis of the oil gave alkyl esters of the component fatty acids. Reductive ozonolysis of these esters gave an alkyl azelaaldehydate used for reductive alkylation of ammonia. The alkyl 9-aminononanoate was not isolated but hydrolyzed directly to 9-aminononanoic acid. Yields in the reductive alkylation-hydrolysis were b ...
