  author={P. Ramesh and V. Ravikanth and Y. Venkateswarlu},
In continuation of our interest in the bioactive secondary metabolites from the marine organisms, we examined the soft coral Sinularia dissecta Tixier Durivault (Afcyoniidae) collected from the Mandapam Coast, Tamilnadu during June 1996. From this soft coral Sinu!aria dissecta, we reported five new polyoxygenated steroids·, two new diterpenes·, four sesquiterpenoids and a ~-al anine methyl ester derivative for the first time. We report herein the isolation and structural elucidation of 15… Expand
Polyhydroxylated steroids from the soft coral Sinularia dissecta
A repeated silica gel column chromatography followed by HPLC purification on the methanol extract of marine soft coral Sinularia dissecta, resulted in the isolation of fifteen polyhydroxylatedExpand
Terpenoids of Sinularia.: Chemistry and Biomedical Applications
Several of the previously published secondary metabolites of the soft coral genus Sinularia are reexamined for their pharmacological properties, and the results strongly support further investigations. Expand
Metabolites from Sinularia species
This review covers about 40 species of the genus Sinularia, in which many compounds with novel chemical structures have been isolated, characterised and bioassayed for various activities since theExpand
