We describe the development of an efficient and convenient process for preparation of γ-nonalactone. The synthesis was accomplished by free-radical addition of methyl acrylate and n-hexanol. A Dean–Stark trap filled with water and n-hexanol was used to remove the methanol generated during the process. Orthogonal experiments were performed to optimize the reaction conditions, and the desired product, γ-nonalactone, was produced in better than 70 % yield.
