This investigation describes the synthesis and biological evaluation of a series of oxabicyclic analogues related to the helminthosporins. Four oxabicycles were prepared by [4+3] cycloaddition of an oxyallyl carbocation, generated in situ from 2,4-dibromopentan-3-one, with selected furans. Functional group manipulations of the oxabicyclic architecture generated nine further derivatives. The phytotoxic properties of these oxabicycles were evaluated as their ability to interfere with the growthdoi:10.3390/molecules14010160 pmid:19127245 fatcat:2cpjijwn2rhnblrdi7inefjtaa
