Abstract

(±)-Gusanlung A, 8-oxyberberrubine and (±)-gusanlung D have been synthesized by radical cyclisation of the corresponding 2-aroyl-1-methylenetetra- hydroisoquinolines. The 1H and 13C spectra of (-)-gusanlung D were found to be different from those of synthetic (±)-gusanlung D. Careful analyses of the 13C spectra of (–)-gusanlung A and natural 8-oxyberberrubine also cast doubt on the correctness of the structures previously assigned to these two compounds. (±)-Gusanlung A and (±)-gusanlung D were inactive against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC25932, Escherichia coli ATCC10536 and Candida albicans ATCC90028.
