Sixteen new thymol derivatives have been isolated from Eupatorium fortunei and their structures determined based on spectroscopic data. They were classified into three groups (i-iii) depending on the oxidation levels: (i) one oxygen function at the 9-position, (ii) two oxygen functions at the 8- and 9-positions, and (iii) three oxygen functions at the 8-,(More)
The title compounds have been synthesized starting from l-menthone by application of a ring-closing metathesis reaction to confirm their reported absolute and relative stereochemistry. Comparisons of the NMR spectra and specific rotations are also discussed.

The terpenoid constituents of Ligularia virgaurea (30 samples), Ligularia pleurocaulis (8 samples), Ligularia dictyoneura (8 samples), Ligularia brassicoides (5 samples), Ligularia lingiana (1 sample), and Ligularia liatroides (1 sample)(all belonging to section Senecillis of Ligularia, Asteraceae and collected in Yunnan, Sichuan, Qinghai, and Gansu(More)
The prenyl ester and the phenylethyl ester of caffeic acid, formed in the bud excretion of poplar species, were shown recently to be the major contact allergens in bee-glue. An unambiguous synthesis of these compounds, based on the reaction of caffeic acid with 1-bromo-3-methyl-2-butene and with beta-bromoethylbenzene, respectively, is reported. The(More)
[structure: see text] Two novel sesquiterpene and monoterpene dimers, macrophyllols A (1) and B (2), were isolated from the bark of Inula macrophylla. Their structures were determined on the basis of spectral evidence (especially HREIMS and 2D NMR) as well as chemical transformation. The structure of macrophyllol A (1) was confirmed by X-ray analysis. The(More)
Medium sized carbocycles are particularly difficult to synthesize. Ring closing metathesis reactions (RCM) have recently been applied to construct eight-membered carbocycles, but trisubstituted double bonds in the eight-membered rings are more difficult to produce using RCM reactions. In this review, model examples and our own results are cited and the(More)
As a part of a research project on the elucidation of the chain-breaking antioxidation mechanism of natural phenols in food components, caffeic acid, a polyphenolic acid widely distributed in edible plants, was investigated. The identification and time course analysis of the antioxidation reaction products from methyl caffeate were carried out in the ethyl(More)
Intra-specific diversity in Liularia vellerea growing in the northwestern to central Yunnan province of China was studied by chemical and genetic approaches. Samples collected in the Jianchuan, Lijiang, and Zhongdian areas contained 6,15-dioxygenated furanoeremophilanes as their major components (type A); whereas samples from the Luguhu area accumulated(More)
Two samples of Cremanthodium stenactinium (Asteraceae) were collected in Sichuan Province, China. From the ethyl acetate extracts of the roots, three new eremophilane-type sesquiterpenoids and one new trinoreremophilane compound were isolated, together with other known eremophilanes. Their structures were determined based on the spectroscopic data. This is(More)
