Both are synthesized from farnesoic acid in the corpora allata.

A novel synthetic approach for the synthesis of bioactive phenolic natural products is reported. This strategy highlights the power of halogenative aromatization reactions recently developed in our group for preparing densely functionalized arenes in a controlled fashion. Five natural products related by an aromatic core and a farnesyl side chain are synthesized. In contrast to prior methods, this synthesis features high efficiency and generality that permits preparation of targets in gram-scale quantities.

Synthesis of d,l-C18 Cecropia Juvenile Hormone from Farnesol,

Synthesis of 2-cis,6-trans farnesol by Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda).

E,E-farnesol - Synthesis - The Pherobase

AB - (+)-(1R,2R,3R)-Presqualene diphosphate (PSPP) is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of squalene from farnesyl diphosphate (FPP). The natural 1R,2R,3R enantiomer was synthesized from farnesol in nine steps with ≥98% ee. The key step in the synthesis was the stereoselective intramolecular cyclopropanation of farnesyl diazoacetate (5) upon treatment with a chiral rhodium catalyst to give (-)-lactone 6.
