Abstract

Blennolides A-G (2-8), seven unusual chromanones, were isolated together with secalonic acid B (1) from Blennoria sp., an endophytic fungus from Carpobrotits edidis. This is the first reported isolation of the blennolides 2 and 3 (hemisecalonic acids B and E), the existence of which as the monomeric units of the dimeric secaIonic acids had long been postulated. A compound of the proposed structure 4 (beta-diversonolic ester) will need to be revised, as its reported data do not fit those of the established structure of blennolide C (4). Other monomers, the blennolides D-F (5-7) seem to be derived from blennolides A (2) and B (3) by rearrangement of the hydroaromatic ring. The heterodimer 8, composed of the monomeric blennolide A (2) and the rearranged 11-dehydroxy derivative of blennolide E (6), extends the ergochrome family with an ergoxanthin type of skeleton. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated by detailed spectroscopic analysis and further confirmed by an X-ray diffraction study of a single crystal of 2. The absolute configurations were determined by TDDFT calculations of CD spectra, including the solid-state CD/TDDFF approach. Preliminary studies showed strong antifungal and antibacterial activities of these compounds against Microbotryum violaceum and Bacillus megaterium, respectively. They were also active against the alga Chlorella fusca and the bacterium Escherichia coli.
