Abstract

The structure of antidesmone, an alkaloid from Antidesma membranaceum Müll. Arg. and A. venosum E. Mey. (Euphorbiaceae), was revised to be (S)-4,8-dioxo-3-methoxy-2-methyl-5-n-octyl-1,4,5,6,7,8-hexahydroquinoline [(S)-2], not the isoquinoline derivative 1, as assumed previously. The revision was initiated by biosynthetic feeding experiments of one of our groups.
