Abstract

Synthesis of protected siphonodictyal C was achieved via drim-7-en-11-al. Some sesquiterpene quinones and hydroquinones were tested for their pharmacological activities in assays in search of antiproliferative, cytotoxic, antiphlogistic, antirheumatic and anti-inflammatory drugs. Wiedendiol B is a ten times stronger cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor than the reference compound indomethacine. Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors are drugs with antiphlogistic and antirheumatic activity.
