Nitropyrrole natural products: isolation, biosynthesis and total synthesis
Nitropyrrole-containing natural products are relatively rare in nature. Known examples are limited to the β-nitropyrrole-containing pyrrolomycins and α-nitropyrrole-containing nitropyrrolins and heronapyrroles. Their unique structures and interesting bioactivity are of ongoing interest to the chemistry community. This review describes the isolation, biological activity, biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of nitropyrrole-containing natural products reported to date.
