Six new furan derivatives, named 5-(3-methoxy-3-oxopropyl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid (1), 1-(5-(2-hydroxypropanoyl)-furan-2-yl)-pentan-3-one (2), 2-hydroxy-1-(5-(1-hydroxypentyl)-furan-2-yl)-propan-1-one (3), 1-(5-(1,2-dihydroxypropyl)-furan-2-yl)-pentan-1-one (4), 5-(1-hydroxypent-4-en-1-yl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid (5) and 5-(3-hydroxypentyl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid (6), together with two new natural products, named 5-(1-hydroxypentyl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid (7) and (E)-5-(2-carboxyvinyl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid (8), were isolated from the solid rice fermentation of endophytic fungus Coriolopsis sp. J5, which was derived from mangrove plant Ceriops tagal. Their structures were unambiguously elucidated based on 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, and by HRESIMS measurements, as well as by comparison with the literature. View Full-Text
