Stereoselective syntheses of all stereoisomers of lariciresinol and their plant growth inhibitory activities.


PMID 22066904

Abstract

All stereoisomers of lariciresinol were synthesized to examine the effect of stereochemistry on plant growth. Configuration of benzylic 7-positions was constructed through S(N)1 or S(N)2 intramolecular etherification. 8- and 8'-position configurations were established from the starting material except for all cis stereoisomers, the 8-position configurations of which were achieved by employing stereoselective hydroboration. (-)-Lariciresinol and its 7S,8S,8'R stereoisomer inhibited the root growth of Italian ryegrass to 51-55% relative to the negative control, whereas other stereoisomers had less effect. These results demonstrate that the stereochemistry of lignans is one of the important factors influencing their inhibitory activity.
