Chloraserrtone A, a new sesquiterpenoid dimer with two lindenane-type sesquiterpenoid monomers bridged by two six-membered rings, was isolated from Chloranthus serratus by Bai et al. It represents the first lindenane-type sesquiterpenoid dimer with an extremely unique skeleton, molecular formula C3H36O9.
An unexpected synthetic product coming from Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin, from the lab of Dr. Marc Nazaré. The dataset was provided to ACD/Labs as part of our Structure Elucidation Suite Challenge. The product was isolated after a reaction and it was found by HR-MS to have a molecular formula of C14H13N3O.
The Penicillium sp. KFS28 fungus was isolated from a bivalve mollusk, Meretrix Lusoria, from the Haikou Bay in China. The EtOAc extract of the fermentation broth was processed by the authors who isolated and identified four new paxilline-type indole-terpenoids. Compound 1 has the molecular formula C28H35NO6.
El-Elimat et al reported five new and one known meroterpenoids, including the discovery of a novel ioxa[4.3.3]propellane metabolite neosetophomone A that incorporates a 3-methyl-2,3-dihydrofuran bridge into a 5,6 tricyclic 2-hydroxycyclopent-2-en-1-one/tetrahydropyran ring system, molecular formula C24H32O5.
