dear fellow scholars and respected scientists,

Can any body suggest in converting menthol ester to methyl ester with out
effecting chiral centre in a single step? (TRANSESTERFICATION) The
general alternative for this is converting menthol ester to acid (either
Base hydrolysis or Acid hydrolysis) and then esterfying with methnol. The
problem of these process is the extraction of acid from water due its high
solubility. So to avoid this problem i am in a way to look for trans
esterfication method.

Thans in advance
jaganmohan
