Phytotoxicity of Schiekia timida Seed Extracts, a Mixture of Phenylphenalenones

This investigation suggests for the first time that phenylphenalenone compounds may be post-emergence herbicides.

Phytochemical Profiling and Biological Testing of the Constituents of the Australian Plant Haemodorum brevisepalum.

Phytochemical profiling was undertaken on the crude extracts of the bulbs, stems, and the fruits of Haemodorum brevisepalum, to determine the nature of the chemical constituents present, and 13 new and 17 previously reported compounds were isolated and identified.

Distribution, biosynthesis, and biological activity of phenylphenalenone-type compounds derived from the family of plants, Haemodoraceae.

This review focuses on Haemodoraceae-derived phenylphenalenone-type compounds, their distribution amongst species, throughout the plant organism, their biological activity and their biosynthesis.

Precursor-Directed Biosynthesis of Phenylbenzoisoquinolindione Alkaloids and the Discovery of a Phenylphenalenone-Based Plant Defense Mechanism.

The ecological function of phenylphenalenone-type compounds in the Haemodoraceae, subfamily Haemodoroideae, has been substantiated and the deactivation of biogenic amino compounds by N-terminal modification is discussed as the key reaction of a novel phenylbenzoisochromenones-based plant defense mechanism.

Total Syntheses of FR-901235, Auxarthrones A-D, and Lamellicolic Anhydride.

Using the rearrangement of dinaphthyl ketones with three hydroxy groups at restricted positions as a key reaction, the first total syntheses of FR-901235 and auxarthrones A-D from an unstable triketone common intermediate are described and lamellicolic anhydride was synthesized from the triketones.



Organ-specific analysis of phenylphenalenone-related compounds in Xiphidium caeruleum.

HPLC–NMR for tissue‐specific analysis of phenylphenalenone‐related compounds in Xiphidium caeruleum (Haemodoraceae)

HPLC–1H NMR has been used to study the tissue‐specific distribution of phenylphenalenones, polyphenolic natural products of Xiphidium caeruleum, a neotropical member of the Haemodoraceae plant

Phenylphenalenone-related compounds: chemotaxonomic markers of the haemodoraceae from Xiphidium caeruleum.

Phytochemical analysis of Xiphidium caeruleum resulted in the isolation and identification of a variety of phenylphenalenone-related compounds, which are used as the basis to elaborate biogeographic characteristics of this plant family.

Histochemical analysis of phenylphenalenone-related compounds in Xiphidium caeruleum (Haemodoraceae)

The present results provide new insights into the possible functions of phenylphenalenone-related compounds in the context of their localisation and the advantages and limitations of the techniques are discussed.
