The structure of grilactone has been established. It corresponds to guai-1(2),13-dien-12,8-olide.

The permanganate oxidation of grilactone, isogrilactone, and dihydrogrilactone forms, together with the normal oxidation products, monooxides of the guaianolides containing a γ-oxide ring linking carbon atoms 1 and 7.
