Title: Biomimetic Synthesis of Drimenin; Approaches to the Synthesis of Warburganal
Authors: Takaki, Ketherine
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: A new compound was isolated and structurally characterized in 1967 by a group from Columbia University as part of their search for compounds displaying antifeedant activities. Deriving its name from the East African genus Warburgia, warburganal was isolated from W. ugandaensis whose park is widely used in African folk medicine and cooking. Together with W. stuhlmanii, the two species have given rise to a number of compounds displaying interesting, selective, antifeedant activity. These include warburganal, uganensidial, polygodial, and muzigadial.
