|Title:||2,2-DIMETHYL- -ARYLOXY-ALKANOIC ACIDS AND SALTS AND ESTERS THEREOF|
|Abstract:||A series of 2,2-dimethyl-.omega.-phenoxyalkanoic acids and 2,2-dimethyl-.omega.-(disubstituted phenoxy)alkanoic acids having 3 to 6 methylene groups between the phenoxy group or 0 phenoxy group and the carbon atom substituted by two methyl groups; and their salts and esters. The compounds reduce serum triglyceride levels and can be produced by (a) reacting an alkali metal derivative of an isobutyric acid, salt, or ester with a phenoxyalkyl halide or a disubstituted phenoxyalkyl halide; (b) esterifying a carboxylic acid; or (c) hydrolyzing a carboxylate ester.|
