Abstract

The hydrocarbon trans-Ph·[C≡C]2·CH=CHMe (tritium-labelled in the benzene ring) was inserted into the tuberous roots of two Dahlia hybrids and found to be converted into the ω-alcohol trans-Ph·[C≡C]2·CH=CH·CH 2·OH, the threo-diol Ph·[C≡C]2· CH(OH)·CHMe·OH, and the threo-triol Ph·[C≡C] 2·CH(OH)·CH(OH)·CH2·OH, but not into the hydrocarbon Ph·[C≡C]3·Me. The diol and triol had not previously been recognised as natural products.
