Syntheses of Naturally Occurring Terphenyls and Related Compounds
Naturally occurring terphenyls and related compounds such as terferol and its corresponding quinone and phlebiarubrone were synthesized from 2,5-diphenyl-1,4-benzoquinone. According to the proposed biosynthetic pathway, chemical conversion of phlebiarubrone to ustalic acid, a toxic compound isolated from the poisonous mushroom, <I>Tricholoma ustale</I>, was examined to find a low-yield conversion to the ustalic acid dimethyl ester.
