Four new compounds, rearranged noreremophilan-8,6-olide, rearranged dinoreremophilanone, epoxy gamma-lactone, and 2 alpha-hydroxyermophil-11-en-9-one, along with eremophilenolides related to ligularol and other known terpenoids, were isolated from Ligularia virgaurea (ligularol type) collected from the northern Sichuan Province of China. Three of the new compounds had degraded and unique structures. The absolute configuration of 2 alpha-hydroxyermophil-11-en-9-one was determined on the basis of density functional theory calculation. The back octant rule cannot be applied to this compound because of the contribution of the hydroxy group to the front octant. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract Two novel indole alkaloids and new quinazoline alkaloids, namely leucomidines A–C ( 1–3 ), were isolated from the barks of Leuconotis griffithii . The structures including the absolute configuration were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data, chemical means, and CD calculations. The quinazoline alkaloid, 3 , is proposed to be derived from the same biogenetic precursor as the indole alkaloids 1 and 2 .

From the medicinal plant Isodon rubescens, we isolated two novel diterpenes, rubesanolides A (1) and B (2). The compounds contain a unique β-lactone subgroup. This is the first discovery for a natural diterpene having rings A, B, and C in chair, boat, and twist-chair conformations, respectively. The structures were elucidated by analysis of spectroscopic data, and the absolute configuration of 1 was determined by X-ray diffraction.

Time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) has been employed to calculate the electronic circular dichroism (CD) spectra of tris-bidentate iron group complexes [M(L-L) 3 ] 2+ (M = Fe, Ru, Os; L-L = 2,2'-bipyridine). The simulated CD spectra are compared with the experiment, and reasonably good agreement is obtained. In this study, much effort has been made to interpret the exciton CD arising from the long-axis-polarized π→ π* excitations in the ligands of the complexes. Metal-ligand orbit...

Three new compounds of the rare classes trisnorditerpenes, bisnorditerpenes, and norditerpenes, gracilins J−L (1, 2, 6), and a new diterpene, 3′-norspongiolactone (8), were isolated from the extract of the marine sponge Spongionella sp. using NMR- and bioassay-guided fractionation, in addition to three known gracilins (3−5) as well as the known diterpenoid tetrahydroaplysulphurin-1 (7). The structures were elucidated using NMR spectroscopic techniques and mass spectrometric analysis. The structu...

ne chemical constituents of the root extracts and the nucleotide sequences of the atpB-rbcL intergenic region of Ligularia latihastata and L. villosa, collected in northwestern Yunnan Province, were studied. In the twelve collected samples of L. latihastata, two major benzofurans. 5,6-dimethoxy-2-(1-methylethenyl)-1-benzofuran (1) and euparin (2) were detected as major components. The minor compound (2R*,3S*)-5-acetyl-2,3-dihydro-6-hydroxy-2-(1-methylethenyl)-1-benzofuran-3-yl (2Z)-2[(acetoxy)me...

Four samples of Ligularia virgaurea collected in China afforded three new eremophilane sesquiterpenoids, one new norsesquiterpenoid, and two new dinorsesquiterpenoids as well as 28 known compounds. All the four samples belonged to the ligularol type (L type), one of the five chemotypes we have described for this species. The configuration of the previously reported eremophila-7(11),9-dien-12,8-olide is revised to be H-8 alpha. The absolute configuration of ethyl 8-oxoeremophila-7(11),9-dien-12-o...

Abstract The phytochemical investigation of whole plants of Ligularia pleurocaulis led to isolation of five sesquiterpenoids, including an eremophilenolide dimer named biligupleurolide, along with eight known sesquiterpenoids. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods including 2D NMR techniques, and the structures of biligupleurolide and ligupleurolide were confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. All of the isolated compounds were tested for their cytotoxic activity against thr...

Further chemical investigation of two Ligularia virgaurea samples collected in China resulted in the isolation of 21 new compounds, two of which were bakkane-type sesquiterpenoids bearing an anhydride-type ring C, which was a previously unknown partial structure. These samples belonged to the V-type (the major component was virgaurenone) among the five chemotypes found in this species. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
