Abstract

Low-temperature determinations of the crystal structures of the naturally occurring quinones ventilagone (as its p-bromobenzyl ether) and dunnione (as its p-bromophenylhydrazone) permit the assignment of their absolute configurations as (1R,3S)-7,10-dihydroxy-1,3,8-trimethyl-3,4,6,9-tetrahydro-1H-naphtho[2,3-c]- pyrane-6,9-dione 1 and (2R)-2,3-dihydro-2,3,3-trimethylnaphtho[1,2-b]furan-4,5- dione 2.
