453 - Synthesis of derivatives of Chiricanine A
Professor Joseph J. Mullins PhD, Phung Tran, Divina Oweis Department of Chemistry & Physics, Le Moyne College, Syracuse, NY, United States
This poster will detail progress toward the
synthesis of derivatives of the phenolic stilbenoid Chiricanine A ((E)-2-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-5-styrylbenzene-1,3-diol).
Chiricanine A is toxic against a. aegyptii larvae and has antifungal
properties [J. Nat. Prod. 2001, 64, 710-715]. We have
prepared novel analogs of this compound which incorporate alternate aromatic substituents
(4-fluorophenyl, 4-nitrophenyl, 2-naphthyl, 4-pyridyl, furfuryl) in place of
the unsubstituted phenyl ring.
