Sherman, Gwendolyn Margaret
MetadataShow full item record
Cassaic acid (I) is one of the hydrolysis products from cassaine, an alkaloid found in the bark of Erythrophleum guineense. Earlier investigators formulated cassaic acid as I-, with the hydroxyl and ketone groups placed provisionally at positions 2 and 9, respectively. The present work provides experimental evidence proving the correctness of these two assignments. [TRUNCATED]
