A natural diastereomeric mixture of 5-(6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethyl-chroman-2-yl)-2-methyl-pentanoic acid methyl ester (1
), was isolated from the soft coral Sinularia arborea
. The structure of 1
was elucidated by spectroscopic methods and 1
displayed a significantly inhibitory effect on the generation of superoxide anion by human neutrophils.
