Hydrogenation of (1R,2R,6S)-3-methyl-6-(1-methylethenyl)cyclohex-3-ene-1,2-diol was studied. Nickel chloride–sodium tetrahydridoborate system turned out to selectively reduce the double bond in the isopropenyl group. The results of conformational analysis of (1R,2R,6S)-3-methyl-6-(1-methylethenyl)cyclohex-3-ene-1,2-diol and its partly and completely hydrogenated derivatives were in a good agreement with the NMR data.
