ABSTRACT Abstract: The known chromodorolides A (1) and B (2), and a new derivative chromodorolide C (3) have been isolated from an Australian sponge and characterized by 1D and 2D NMR experiments. The chromodorolides exhibited significant cytotoxicity against the P388 mouse leukaemia cell line, and also showed activity against the freeliving larval stages of the parasitic nematodes Haemonchus contortus and Trichostrongylus colubriformis.

    ABSTRACT: This review covers the literature published in 2007 for marine natural products, with 948 citations(627 for the period January to December 2007) referring to compounds isolated from marine microorganisms and phytoplankton, green algae, brown algae, red algae, sponges, cnidarians,bryozoans, molluscs, tunicates, echinoderms and true mangrove plants. The emphasis is on new compounds (961 for 2007), together with the relevant biological activities, source organisms and country of origin. Biosynthetic studies, first syntheses, and syntheses that lead to the revision of structures or stereochemistries, have been included.1 Introduction, 2 Reviews, 3 Marine microorganisms and phytoplankton, 4 Green algae, 5 Brown algae, 6 Red algae, 7 Sponges, 8 Cnidarians, 9 Bryozoans, 10 Molluscs, 11 Tunicates (ascidians),12 Echinoderms, 13 Miscellaneous, 14 Conclusion, 15 References.

    ABSTRACT: A stereoselective synthesis of (+)-norrisolide is presented. This natural product belongs to a family of marine spongiane diterpenes the structure of which is characterized by a fused gamma-lactone-gamma-lactol ring system attached to a bicyclic hydrophobic core. Our studies led to the development of a expedient synthesis of such gamma-lactone-gamma-lactol motifs based on ring expansion of a fused cyclopropyl ester. Highlights of the synthetic strategy toward norrisolide include the coupling of the two bicyclic systems by constructing a sterically demanding C9-C10 bond and the installation of the C19 oxygen at the last step of the synthesis via a Baeyer-Villiger oxidation.

    ABSTRACT: In this review we cover the structures, occurrence, biological activities and synthesis of all the spongianes and rearranged spongianes since their discovery in 1974. We have given special attention to structure revisions and biological properties of these polycyclic terpenoids of exclusive marine origin. However, an important part of the review describes the synthetic efforts in the field. Thus, this part has been subdivided into syntheses from other natural products, syntheses by biomimetic approaches and other approaches including enantioselective total syntheses.
