Cyclohexa-1, 4-dienes with appropriate substituents, obtained by birch reduction of the substituted benzene, react directly with derivatives of propiolic ester or aldchyde to yield aromatic polyketides. The following compounds have been synthesized; mycophenolic acid, nidulol methyl other, the root growth hormone 3, 5-dihydroxy-2-formyl-4-mythyl-benzoic acid, antibiotic DB 2073, the macrocyclic lactones lasiodiplodin and dihydrozearalenone and the biphenyl derivatives alternario and altenusin. Polyketide anthraquinones can be made from naphthoquinone precursors.
