Summary

The biosynthesis of glaucarubinone (IXa) and glaucarubolone (IXb), the bitter constituents ofSimarouba glauca (Simaroubaceae), has been investigated with the help of [2-14C] mevalonic acid lactone. The results so far obtained are consistent with the scheme involving a tetracyclic triterpene of the apoeuphol type as a precursor of these bitter substances.
