The synthesis of desertorin C, a bicoumarin from the fungus Emericella desertorum

Abstract

The structure of desertorin C, a metabolite of the mould Emericella desertorum, is confirmed as 4,4′,7,7′-tetramethoxy-5,5′-dimethyl-6,8′-bicoumarin (6), by its synthesis in racemic form. The key step involved the construction of the unsymmetrical biphenyl, 2,2′,4,6′-tetramethoxy-4′,6-dimethylbiphenyl (19), using dihydro-oxazole chemistry.
