Total syntheses of (+/-)-gusanlung a, (+/-)-gusanlung D and 8-oxyberberrubine and the uncertainty concerning the structures of (-)-gusanlung A, (-)-gusanlung D and 8-oxyberberrubine.


(+/-)-Gusanlung A, 8-oxyberberrubine and (+/-)-gusanlung D have been synthesized by radical cyclisation of the corresponding 2-aroyl-1-methylenetetra- hydroisoquinolines. The (1)H and (13)C spectra of (-)-gusanlung D were found to be different from those of synthetic (+/-)-gusanlung D. Careful analyses of the (13)C spectra of (-)-gusanlung A and natural 8… (More)
