Abstract

(±)-Cryptomeriolide, a pair of racemic bis-seco-abietane diterpenoids, were isolated from the bark of Cryptomeria fortunei. The separation of enantiomers was achieved by using chiral stationary phase HPLC. Their structures including the absolute configuration and conformations in solution and solid state were determined by extensive analysis of spectroscopic data, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, and comparison of calculated and experimental electronic circular dichroism data. A bioinspired one-pot enantiomeric synthesis of 1a and 1b was accomplished via a readily made intermediate orthoquinone from sugiol. All compounds including the synthetic intermediates were assayed for their cytotoxic activities on human cancer cell lines HL-60, A549, and SGC7901.
