As important marine biological resources, corals produce a large amount of active organic compounds in their secondary metabolic processes, including numerous brominated, chlorinated, and iodinated compounds. These compounds, with novel structures and unique activities, guide the discovery and research of important lead compounds and novel biological mechanisms. Through large numbers of literature survey, this paper summarized a total of 145 halogenated secondary metabolites which were roughly…

Isolation and structures of new halogenated prostanoids from the Okinawan soft coral Clavularia viridis.

TLDR
Fifteen new halogenated prostanoids 9-23 were isolated as minor constituents from the Okinawan soft coral Clavularia viridis and the structures of these compounds were determined on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical conversion.
