Abstract

BRITO, IVÁN et al. ABSOLUTE CONFIGURATION OF MULINOLIC ACID. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2017, vol.62, n.3, pp.3658-3660. ISSN 0717-9707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0717-97072017000303658.

The structure of this mulinolic acid consists of a mulinane skeleton and the corresponding isopropyl, methyl, carboxyl and methyl groups at C3, C8, C5, C13, respectively, which are β-oriented, whereas the hydroxyl group at C13 is α-oriented. The cyclopentane (A), ciclohexane (B) and cicloheptene (C) rings are trans (A/B) and (B/C) cis fused, and in an envelope, chair, and twist conformation respectively.

In the crystal the molecules are linked by two intermolecular O—H⋅⋅⋅O hydrogen bond forming bidimensional supramolecular structures with graph-set notation R44(12), R44(40), R66(46) and C44(46). The absolute configuration of the title compound has been determined from the refinement of the Flack parameter16. On this basis the absolute configuration was assigned as C3R, C5S, C8S, C9S, C10S and C13R.

Keywords : absolute configuration; diterpenoid; X-ray diffraction; crystal and supramolecular structure.
