Researchers isolate natural antifouling product

Wednesday, 19 March 2014

Natural antifouling products have been the subject of considerable attention.

A team of Japanese researchers screened marine algae for antifouling activity and discovered omaezallenes, the new bromoallene-containing natural products isolated from the red alga Laurencia sp. In a study they described the isolation, structure elucidation, and total syntheses of omaezallenes. The relative and absolute configurations of natural omaezallenes were unambiguously established through total synthesis. The antifouling activities and ecotoxicity of omaezallenes were also evaluated.

The study is published in: Angewandte Chemie.
