Investigation of the fruits of Khaya senegalensis resulted in the isolation of three new mexicanolide limonoids containing a rare conjugated diene lactone system named seneganolide A (1), 2-hydroxyseneganolide A (2) and 2-acetoxyseneganolide A (3). Two known limonoids, 3-deacetyl-7-deacetoxy-7-oxokhivorin (4) and methyl 6-hydroxyangolensate (5), were also(More)
Seven new tetracyclic biscembranes (1-7) have been isolated from the soft coral Sarcophyton glaucum. Four (1-4) may be formed biogenetically by a Diels-Alder reaction of Delta(4(5)) and Delta(8(9)) geometrical isomers of methyl sarcoate and Delta(21(34), 35(36)) dienes, including two with a tetrahydrofuran ring between C-27 and C-30 (3, 4), and three(More)
Three new rings B/D opened limonoids, two rearranged phragmalin limonoids named khayanolides D and E (1 and 2), and one limonoid glucoside named khayanoside (3) were isolated as insect antifeedants from the stem bark of Egyptian Khaya senegalensis. The structures of these compounds were established by spectroscopic methods, including 2D NMR and CD.
Seven new isomalabaricane derivatives, rhabdastins A-G (1-7), and a new monocyclic triterpene glycoside, rhabdastoside A (8), have been isolated from the methanol extract of the sponge Rhabdastrella globostellata, collected at Amami-oshima, Japan. Three of them were isolated as their corresponding methyl esters, rhabdastins A-D (1-3). Their structures were(More)
Corey's tamiflu intermediate was synthesized from a bicyclolactam adduct obtained by base-catalyzed Diels-Alder reaction of N-nosyl-3-hydroxy-2-pyridone with ethyl acrylate. A compound that has the same array of functional groups with the Corey's intermediate was obtained in four steps from the DA adduct in 47% overall yield. The intermediate itself was(More)
A new manoalide-related sesterterpene, (4E,6E)-dehydro-25-O-methylmanoalide (1), was isolated from the organic extracts of the Bornean marine sponge Luffariella variabilis, together with the known compound (4E,6E)-dehydromanoalide (2). The structure of compound 1 was elucidated by interpretation of its spectroscopic data.
