Two new aryl azides, (Z)-1-(3'-azido-4'-methoxyphenyl)-2-(3",4",5"-trimethoxyphenyl)ethene 9 and (Z)-1-(4'-azido-3'-methoxyphenyl)-2-(3",4",5"-trimethoxyphenyl)ethene 5, modeled after the potent antitumor, antimitotic agent combretastatin A-4 (CA-4), have been prepared by chemical synthesis as potentially useful photoaffinity labeling reagents for the(More)
Six tropane alkaloid esters were isolated from the stems of Erythroxylum rotundifolium. The structures of three new tropane esters, 7beta-hydroxy-6beta-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoyloxy)-3alpha-(E)-(3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamoyloxy)tropane (1), 6beta-benzoyloxy-3alpha-(Z)-(3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamoyloxy)tropane (2), and (-)-6beta-benzoyloxy-3alpha-hydroxytropane (3),(More)
The anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative activities of 4β-cinnamoyloxy,1β,3α-dihydroxyeudesm-7,8-ene (1) and of three derivatives, namely diacetate (2), hydrogenate (3) and diacetate hydrogenate (4) were evaluated. All derivatives exert an anti-inflammatory effect significantly lower than that exerted by 1. Otherwise, both the lead compound and 2-4(More)
