Covering: up to early 2016Marine sponges are widely known as a rich source of natural products, especially of polyketide origin, with a wealth of chemical diversity. Within this vast collection, peroxide and peroxide-derived secondary metabolites have attracted significant interest in the fields of natural product isolation and chemical synthesis for their structural distinction and promising in vitro antimicrobial and anticancer properties. In this review, peroxide and peroxide-derived… Expand

Total synthesis and structural elucidation of spongosoritin A.
Two putative structures of spongosoritin A, with syn (6R,8R) and anti (6S,8R) configurations, were each synthesised in a total of 11 linear steps with only 8 purification procedures. The key steps inExpand
Antifeedant, cytotoxic, and anti-inflammatory neo-clerodane diterpenoids in the peltate glandular trichomes and fresh leaves of Ajuga forrestii.
Biological assays indicated that the major GT compound ajugacumbin B and undescribed ajuforrestins D/E showed antifeedant activity against Helicoverpa armigera, suggesting that neo-clerodanes in A. forrestii should be involved in plant defence against insects. Expand
Plakortinic acids C and D: a pair of peroxide-polyketides possessing a rare 7,8-dioxatricyclo[,5]dec-9-ene core from a two-sponge association of Plakortis symbiotica-Xestospongia deweerdtae.
Two unprecedented peroxide-polyketides with 7,8-dioxatricyclo[4.2.02,5]dec-9-ene scaffold and a mixture of methyl ester derivatives 5 and 6 displayed negligible cytotoxicity against a panel of 60 cell lines of various human cancers at a concentration of 10 μM. Expand
