Cubitane: a rare diterpenoid skeleton

Cubitane: a rare diterpenoid skeleton There are only 15 diterpenoids known sharing the rare cubitane skeleton (1,3-diisopropyl-6,10-dimethylcyclododecane, Fig. 1) named after the natural product (+)-cubitene ((+)- 1 ) from the termite Cubitermes umbratus . Cubitane-type diterpenoids (“cubitanoids”) have since then been isolated from gorgonian corals and there are reports that cubitene also occurs in plants. The twelve-membered ring of the cubitanoids is an interesting feature for which we have developed a novel synthesis involving bicyclic precursors. In this review, we discuss the state-of-research regarding isolation, structure elucidation, biological activity, biosynthesis, and total synthesis of cubitane-type diterpenoids.(Figure not available: see fulltext.) http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Phytochemistry Reviews Springer Journals
