Abstract

The gorgonian Briareum asbestinum contained two classes of diterpenes, the briareins and the asbestinins. The structure of asbestinh}-1 (3) was determined from a single-crystal X-ray diffraction study on the corresponding diol 8. The structures of asbestinins-2, -3, -4, and -5 (4-7) were determined by analysis of spectral data. The relationships between asbestinins-2,-3, -4, and -5 (4-7) and asbestinin-1 (3) were confirmed by chemical interconversions.
