Abstract

Mycosphines A-D (1-4), comprising a class of new short-branched fatty acid dimers, were found in the cultures of an endophytic fungus, Mycosphaerella sp., isolated from Aloe arborescens. The structures, including the absolute stereochemistries were determined by spectroscopic analysis, single crystal X-ray diffraction, and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD).
