LOGRADO, Lúcio P. L. et al. Synthesis and biological evaluation of new salicylate macrolactones from anacardic acids. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.6a, pp. 1217-1225. ISSN 1678-4790. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532005000700020.
In connection with our ongoing investigation in the search for new bioactive compounds using non-isoprenoid phenolic lipids from Anacardium occidentale as starting material, we describe the synthesis and cytotoxicity screening of some novel salicylate macrolactones prepared from anacardic acids, the major constitutents of natural cashew nut-shell liquid (CNSL).
Keywords : cashew nut shell liquid; anacardic acids; salicylate macrolactones.
