Structure of Chorismic Acid, a New Intermediate in Aromatic Biosynthesis


A NEW intermediate in aromatic biosynthesis was recently predicted1,2 and later found3. The intermediate, for which the trivial name chorismic acid is suggested4, has now been isolated as the barium salt following chromatography on ‘Dowex 1’ ion exchange resin, elution with ammonium chloride and precipitation with alcohol.
