Witanowski’s discovery - and how its early misinterpretation and subsequent neglect continue to impede scientific progress and insight
W.R. Witanowski isolated and characterized the naphthoquinone ramentaceone from Drosera rotundifolia in 1934 and named the compound droserone. This constitutes the first publication that described

METALLOPORPHYRIN-CATALYZED OXIDATION OF 2-CYCLOALKYL-3-HYDROXYNAPHTHOQUINONES
Mild H2O2 oxidation of a small series of 2-cycloalkyl-3-hydroxynaphthoquinones catalyzed by 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)-21H,23H-porphineiron(III) chloride in methanol−dichloromethane leads
A mechanistic study on the Hooker oxidation: synthesis of novel indane carboxylic acid derivatives from lapachol.
TLDR
The present study has thrown some light on the formation of the key intermediate 3 from lapachol (1) via benzilic acid rearrangement of the corresponding labile o-diquinone intermediate 8 derived from Lapachol.
Syntheses of substituted 1,4-naphthoquinones by Diels–Alder addition of methoxycyclohexadienes to substituted 1,4-benzoquinones
Additions of 1-methoxycyclohexa-1,3-diene to 2-methoxy-3-methyl-1,4-benzoquinone and to chloro-1,4-benzoquinone give Diels–Alder adducts which are coverted in high yield into substituted juglone
Multiple convergence in polyketide biosynthesis: a third folding mode to the anthraquinone chrysophanol.
The polyketide chrysophanol is shown to be formed, in an organism-specific way, by a third folding mode, involving a remarkable cyclization of a bicyclic diketo precursor, thus establishing the first
Different polyketide folding modes converge to an identical molecular architecture
TLDR
This work has detected the bioactive anthraquinone chrysophanol, which serves as a chemical defense in diverse eukaryotic organisms, in a bacterial Nocardia strain, thereby permitting the first comparative biosynthetic study.
