Abstract:

When the tail fractions from chromatograms of sporidesmin E I n3 were rechromatographed, a new crystalline metabolite of Pithomyces chartarum was isolated with molecular formula C18H20ClN3O6S4. The new compound, named, sporidesmin G I n4, gave sporidesmin I n2 on irradiation of treatment with triphenylphosphine, and sporidesmin D V after reduction and methylation. It was shown that the model compound, 1,4-dimethyl-3,6-epidithiopiperzine-2,5-dione, gave the cyclic tetraulphide on treatment with dihydrogen disulphide. Similarly, sporidesmin and sporidesmin E when treated with dihydrogen disulphide gave the new metabolite. Author
