Two terphenyl quinones were synthesized for a structural study on a naturally occurring biologically active terphenyl quinone. 3-Methoxy-5,6-diphenylcyclohexa-3,5-dien-1,2-dione, a possible structure proposed by our analysis of the NMR spectra, was synthesized by Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and subsequent oxidation of the resulting substituted phenol, although not being identical to the natural product. Recently isolated 3-methoxy-2,5-diphenylcyclohexa-2,5-dien-1,4-dione was synthesized from a…

Syntheses of Naturally Occurring Terphenyls and Related Compounds
TLDR
Naturally occurring terphenyls and related compounds such as terferol and its corresponding quinone and phlebiarubrone were synthesized from 2,5-diphenyl-1,4-benzoquinone to find a low-yield conversion to the ustalic acid dimethyl ester.
2-Methoxy-3,4-diphenylphenol
TLDR
The title compound, C19H16O2, was isolated as the major product after the solid-state photochemical reaction of 2-methoxy-4,4-diphenylcyclohexa-2,5-dienone and Hydrogen-bonded dimers are formed in the crystal structure via O—H⋯O interactions.
A new pyranone from Lenzites betulina
A new pyranone, 2-methoxy-3,6-diphenyl-4H-pyran-4-one, named betulinan C, together with three known compounds, 5α,8α-epidioxy-22E-ergosta-6,22-dien-3β-ol (2), β-sitosterol (3), and
A General Synthesis of Quinone Ammonium Salts
A three-step procedure has been developed to convert substituted p-dimethoxybenzenes to quinone ammonium salts. Five examples of quinone ammonium salts have been prepared with this procedure. In the
Benzoquinones and terphenyl compounds as phosphodiesterase-4B inhibitors from a fungus of the order Chaetothyriales (MSX 47445).
TLDR
Three bioactive compounds were isolated from an organic extract of an ascomycete fungus of the order Chaetothyriales using bioactivity-directed fractionation as part of a search for anticancer leads from filamentous fungi, including benzoquinones and terphenyl compounds.
Efficient ortho-oxidation of phenols with diacyl peroxides.
TLDR
The improvement of the yield of ortho-oxidation of phenols with mCBPO was also reported, and CAMCBPO gave para-oxidized compounds as minor products from some phenols.
Efficient ortho-oxidation of phenol and synthesis of anti-MRSA and anti-VRE compound abietaquinone methide from dehydroabietic acid.
A quinone methide diterpene: abietaquinone methide, which possesses potent anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and anti-vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) activities, was
Oxidation of phenols, pyrocatechols, and hydroquinones to ortho-quinones using benzeneseleninic anhydride
Benzeneseleninic anhydride has been used as a mild oxidising reagent to convert phenols into o-quinones including some examples where the p-position is unblocked. The method is limited to the
Concise enantioselective total syntheses of (+)-homochelidonine, (+)-chelamidine, (+)-chelidonine, (+)-chelamine and (+)-norchelidonine by a Pd II-catalyzed ring-opening strategy.
TLDR
The rapid and convergent route to this class of natural products involved the development and application of a Pd II-catalyzed asymmetric ring-opening reaction of a meso-azabicyclic alkene with an aryl boronic acid as the key step.
Highly substituted terphenyls as inhibitors of parasite cGMP-dependent protein kinase activity.
TLDR
A library of natural product extracts was screened for inhibitors of parasite PKG for the discovery of anticoccidial leads and three new terphenyls were isolated using bioassay-guided fractionation of the microbial extract of a Phoma sp.
