Although chlorosulpholipids have been known since the sixties, the lipid that has just been synthesised was first isolated in the nineties from the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis which is found in the Adriatic Sea.
A team led by chemistry professor Erick M. Carreira in the Organic Chemistry Laboratory has now carried out the first ever complete laboratory synthesis of a natural product from the chlorosulpholipids class and hence confirmed its structure.
This first synthesis of a representative of the chlorosulpholipids now offers an opportunity to decipher more secrets about "mussel toxins".
