The 15β-hydroxy isomer of a m-phenylene PGl2 derivative was converted to its 15α-hydroxy isomer by regioselective protection of 11-hydroxyl group by acylation using 3,5-dinitrobenzoyl chloride followed by inversion of configuration at C-15. A possibility of the presence of π-π interaction between the benzene ring (electron donor) in m-phenylene PGl2 derivative and that (electron acceptor) in the acid chloride is discussed.
