Abstract:
Structures were determined for 48 new natural products and several related compounds by NMR methods. One new natural product and two unnatural product structures were determined by X-ray diffraction. Molecular mechanics calculations on two indoles related to the neurotransmitter serotonin and on some synthetic cyclophanes were used to gain information about their preferred conformations. Considerable time is wasted redetermining the structures of known natural products when they are encountered in new sources. To help alleviate this problem, a database which searches on proton NMR chemical shifts was developed.
