Prenylated benzophenone derivatives from Caribbean Clusia species (Guttiferae). Plukenetiones B-G and Xerophenone A
Date of Publication
Six new prenylated benzophenone derivatives plukenetiones B-G (2-7) have been isolated from the fruits of the Barbadian plant Clusia plukenetii. These structures were elucidated by the use of 2D NMR spectroscopic methods. The regiochemistry of xerophenone A from Clusia portlandiana has been revised.
