Synthesis and inhibitory activity of 7-geranoxycoumarin against Penicillium spp
A naturally occurring compound with a strong antifungal activity was isolated from flavedo tissue of Star Ruby grapefruits (Citrus paradisi Macf.). It was characterized and its structure elucidated. This was found to be 7-geranoxycoumarin. A high yield strategy for its synthesis was found, and its antifungal activity against Penicillium italicum and Penicillium digitatum was gauged by tests in vivo and in vitro.
