Vitamin E with a 13c-labeled isoprenoid side chain, [8‘a- 13C]all-rac-α-tocopherol (1), was synthesized using 6-methoxymethoxy- 2,5,7,8-tetramethyl-2-(5-mercaptothiazolinyl-4-methyl-3-penten-1-yl)chroman (8) as a key intermediate and [13C]methyl iodide as a 13C source. The total yield of the labeled tocopherol based on [13C]methyl iodide was 51.2%.
