Abstract

The X-ray crystal structure of phyllostin (8-hydroxy-3-methyl-2-oxo-2,3,4a,5,8,8a-hexahydro-benzo[1,4]dioxine-6-carboxylic acid methyl ester) is reported. Phyllostin was recently and for the first time isolated, together with phytotoxin phyllostoxin and the phyllostictines A–D, from the culture filtrates of Phyllosticta cirsii, a fungal pathogen isolated from diseased Cirsium arvense leaves and evaluated as biocontrol agent of this noxious perennial weed. Phyllostin crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21 with unit cell parameters: a = 8.371(2), b = 7.026(1), c = 9.918(1) Å, β = 92.013(8)°, Z = 2. The final refinement converged to R1 = 0.0530 for 1026 observed reflections having I > 2σ(I). In the molecule two trans joined six-membered rings are present. The cyclohexene ring adopts a half-chair conformation. The 2-oxo-1,4-dioxan ring adopts a distorted half-chair conformation. The relative stereochemistry of the four chiral centers turns out to be 3R,4aS,8R,8aS. In the crystal packing molecules form infinite chains through O–H···O intermolecular hydrogen bonds. Chains run along the crystallographic a axis forming layers of molecules stacking in the [0 1 0] direction. Graphical Abstract The X-ray crystal structure of phyllostin (8-hydroxy-3-methyl-2-oxo-2,3,4a,5,8,8a-hexahydro-benzo[1,4]dioxine-6-carboxylic acid methyl ester) (I) is reported. In the molecule two trans joined six-membered rings are present. The relative stereochemistry of the four chiral centers turns out to be 3R,4aS,8R,8aS.
