Bioassay-guided fractionation of the organic extracts of the endophyte Daldinia eschscholtzii strain GsE13 led to the isolation of several phytotoxic compounds, including two chromenone and two chromanone derivatives: 5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-2-methyl-4H-chromen-4-one, 1; 5-hydroxy-2-methyl-4H-chromen-4-one, 2; 5-methoxy-2-methyl-chroman-4-one, 3; and 5-methoxy-2-methyl-chroman-4-ol, 4; as well as other aromatic compounds: 4,8-dihydroxy-1-tetralone, 5; 1,8-dimethoxynaphthalene, 6; and 4,9-dihydroxy-1,2,11,12-tetrahydroperyl-ene-3,10-quinone, 7. Compounds 1, 4, and 7 were isolated for the first time from D. eschscholtzii. Read More
