Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bromophycolides C-I (1-7) were isolated from extracts of the Fijian red alga Callophycus serratus and identified by NMR and mass spectral techniques. These novel natural products share a carbon skeleton and biosynthetic origin with previously identified bromophycolides A (8) and B (9), which form a rare group of diterpene-benzoate macrolides. Bromophycolides C-I (1-7) displayed modest antineoplastic activity against a range of human tumor cell lines.
