Finding common ground: The volatiles released by Fusarium verticillioides are mainly composed of biosynthetically related sesquiterpenes with trichodiene as the principle component. The absolute configurations of several sesquiterpenes revealed a common biosynthesis via the (R)-bisabolyl cation (see scheme). Feeding experiments gave insights into the stereochemical course of late cyclisation steps towards trichodiene.
