Synthesis and absolute configuration of hongoquercin B, a sesquiterpene-substituted orsellinic acid isolated as a fungal metabolite.

Abstract

(+)-Hongoquercin B (1), a weakly antibacterial fungal metabolite, was synthesized by starting from (S)-3-hydroxy-2,2-dimethylcyclohexanone, and its absolute configuration was determined as depicted by structure 1.
