  • N. V. Bondarenko


The positions of the acyl residues at C3 and C15 in germerine and germitrine have been corrected, showing that germerine is 3-(d)-2′-hydroxy-2′-methylbutyryl-15-(l)-2′-methylbutyrylgermine and germitrine is 7-acetyl-3-(d)-2′-hydroxy-2′-methylbutyryl-15-(l)-2′-methylbutyrylgermine.
