This revealed formation of the (Z,E,E)-polyene 43, corresponding to a selective E/Z double bond isomerisation. Further irradiation led to the gradual disappearance of the two polyenes 43 and 44, accompanied by formation of tridachiahydropyrone (9). 18 Construction of (E,E,E)-polyene 44. Reagents and conditions: a Pd(PPh3)4, aq. KOH, THF, 80 °C, 55 % O O O hν, MeOH, rt. 19 The biomimetic conversion of 44 into 43, 9 and 93 irradiation resulted in the formation of a new, unexpected, product. The structure of the new photoproduct, named phototridachiahydropyrone (93), was determined by spectroscopic analysis and X-ray crystallography.

The structure of the new photoproduct, named phototridachiahydropyrone (93), was determined by spectroscopic analysis and X-ray crystallography.

The formation of 93 can be explained as arising from a photochemical [1,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement of tridachiahydropyrone (9). Whilst phototridachiahydropyrone (93) has not been isolated from natural sources, it is reasonable to assume that it is a natural product yet to be discovered. A further biosynthetic hypothesis, namely that tridachiahydropyrones B (12) and C (13), isolated as an inseparable mixture in 2000 by Schmitz and co-workers [7], were derived from a photochemical [4 + 2] cycloaddition of tridachiahydropyrone (9) with singlet oxygen, was also explored [10].
