A Revised Structure of Chloranthalactone F and Chloranthalactone A Photodimer
Two known lindenane sesquiterpenoids, chloranthalactone F and chloranthalactone A photodimer, were identified to be the same by direct comparison of the samples and their spectra. Both of their structures were revised to a new structure, head-to-head, <i>anti</i> dimer of chloranthalactone A, from the spectroscopic and chemical studies. Chloranthalactone A photodimer has been reported as an artifact, but this compound was observed as a natural product in the leaves of <i>Chloranthus glaber</i>.
