Alkyl and Alkenyl Resorcinols From an Australian Marine Sponge, Haliclona Sp (Haplosclerida : Haliclonidae)
Australian Journal of Chemistry
44(10) 1393 - 1405
Eleven alkyl and alkenyl resorcinols have been isolated from the Australian marine sponge Haliclona sp. Three of these, (3), (5) and (10), have previously been described from Australian terrestrial and marine plant sources. The remaining eight, (13)-(20), are new natural products whose structures have been secured by a combination of spectroscopic analysis and chemical degradation. This report represents the first account of this structure class being isolated from a non-plant source.
