Three new (1-3), together with four known chromone derivatives (4-7), were isolated from Cassia pumila. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including extensive 1D- and 2D NMR techniques. Compounds 1-3 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (Anti-TMV) activity. The results showed that compounds 1-3 showed potential anti-TMV activities with inhibition rates of 28.3%, 31.2%, and 34.8%, at the concentration of 20 µM, respectively. These rates are close to that of positive control.

Members of two classes of marine polycyclic ether compounds, brevisulcenals (KBTs) and brevisulcatic acids (BSXs), were isolated as causative toxins from a red tide (Karenia brevisulcata) bloom event in New Zealand in 1998. The new analogues, brevisulcenals (KBTs)-G, -H, and -I, were isolated from neutral lipophilic extracts of bulk dinoflagellate culture extracts, and the molecular structures of these compounds were elucidated by detailed analyses of NMR and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization tandem mass spectrometry spectra, and by comparison with the spectra of KBT-F. All the analogues have the same size and arrangement of 24 ether rings, but differ in their backbone substitution patterns and degree of terminal oxidation. The cytotoxicity of these new KBT analogues was greater than that of the co-isolated, KBT-F.

N(3)-Substituted 4-aryl (or heteroaryl)-2(3H)-benzothiazol-2-ones were synthesized from readily accessible chlobenthiazone and benazolin-ethyl, a couple of N(3)-substituted 4-chloro-2(3H)-benzothiazol-2-one pesticides, utilizing Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions (9 examples; 44–98% yield), although with less reactive stereocongested 4-chloro pendant substituent. In a similar fashion, N(3)-substituted 4-anilino (or BocNH)-2(3H)-benzothiazol-2-ones were synthesized from the 4-bromo analogues of the chlobenthiazone-utilizing Buchwald-Hartwig cross-coupling reactions (3 examples; 50–89% yield). In addition, a short synthesis of the key chloro-type quinone segment in natural mevashuntin with a unique 2(3H)-benzothiazol-2-one skeleton, was performed in three short steps with 61% overall yield. The obtained quinone segment functioned as a Diels-Alder reaction dienophile toward the Danishefsky-Kitahara diene as the model experiment. All schemes utilized a common cyclo-condensation using chlorocarbonylsulfenyl chloride for the construction of 4(ortho)-substituted 2(3H)-benzothiazol-2-one substrates.
