Abstract

The structure of the title compound has been shown to be (6), a diterpenoid analogue of the cadinene group. Standard degradation has given the naphthalene (14). The relative stereochemistry is established by crystal structure of dihydroxyserrulatic acid which has been determined by X-ray diffraction at 295 K, and refined by least squares to a residual of 0.059 for 1480 observed reflections. Crystals are orthorhombic, P 212121, a = 15.514 (3), b=14.029 (3), c=8.681 (2)Å, Z=4.
