Abstract

Terpiodiene (1), a novel tricyclic alcohol, was isolated from the Okinawan sponge Terpios hoshinota, which overgrows and kills corals. Its structure was determined by spectroscopic analysis and the modified Mosher's method. This compound exhibited moderate cytotoxicity against P388 cells.
