Abstract

Anastreptene (9b), a tetracyclic mono-ene of the same skeleton as myliol (10) has been found as a common constituent of essential oils derived from liverworts. The relationship to myliol is established by spectral comparison between the hydroboration products and the related ketones from anstreptene and myliol degradation products. The additional degradative chemistry for anastreptene could not be rationalized based on the original myliol assignment (4), but accord with the recent revision based on X-ray crystallography and provide a confirmation of the stereochemical assignments for myliol and anastreptene.
