Studies on the biosynthesis of hydroxymellein using 17O n.m.r. and 2H n.m.r. spectroscopy to determine the origin of the C-4 hydroxy group

Abstract

Evidence that hydroxymellein arises by direct hydroxylation of the benzylic methylene group of mellein has been obtained from 17O n.m.r. spectra of hydroxymellein, following incorporation of 17O-labelled acetate and oxygen, and from direct conversion of 2H-labelled mellein to hydroxymellein.
