Abstract:

In recent years the number of 2,5-epipolythia-3,6-dioxopiperazine antibiotics has increased significantly due to isolation of new members of the series and by chemical transformations of the naturally-occurring compounds. By extensive chemical andor X-ray crystallographic investigations the structure of gliotoxin I, sporidesmin II, X 2, R OH and dehydrogliotoxin III, X 2 was determined and other closely related compounds have since been isolated or synthesized. The report deals with the thin-layer chromatographic behavior of fifteen of these sulfur-containing compounds. The separation of polysulfides II, X 1, 2, 3, 4, R OH and III, X 1, 2, 3, 4 differing only in the number of sulfur atoms in the 2,5 bridge is particularly noted. Author
