Abstract

Five farinomalein derivatives including three new compounds, farinomaleins C-E (3-5), and one new isoindoline congener (6) were isolated from an unidentified endophytic fungus obtained from the inner tissues of healthy leaves of the mangrove plant Avicennia marina from Oman. The structures of the new compounds were unambiguously elucidated on the basis of their mass, as well as one and two dimensional NMR spectroscopic data.
