Norcembrene diterpenoids from pacific soft corals of the genus sinularia alcyonacea octocorallia



Norcembrene diterpenoids from pacific soft corals of the genus sinularia alcyonacea octocorallia



Tetrahedron 41(19): 4303-4308



Four new norcembrene diterpenoids, 2-5, have been isolated from several species of the soft-coral Sinularia collected in Palau, Western Caroline Islands. These new compounds are closely related to a unique norcembrenolide, 1, previously reported from the Australian soft-coral Sinularia leptoclados. The structure assignments of these new compounds were provided by interpretation of spectral data, and the structures of norcembrenes 2 and 3 were confirmed by single crystal X-ray analysis.
