A New Diketopiperazine of Nocardiopsis alba Isolated from Anthogorgia caerulea


Chemical investigation of Nocardiopsis alba isolated from Anthogorgia caerulea led to the isolation of a new diketopiperazine, namely nocarazepine A (1). The structure of the new molecule was elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis.
