This revealed formation of the (Z,E,E)-polyene 43, corresponding to a selective E/Z double bond isomerisation.

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].
