Correlations of the structures of some natural products containing orcinol or phloroglucinol nuclei, and related compounds, support the hypothesis that the molecules are elaborated, at least in part, by the head-to-tail linkage of acetate units. Chemical and biochemical evidence is cited in support of the hypothesis.
