Montagnetol and erythrin the main components of Rocella montagnei were earlier shown to be erythrityl esters of orsellinic acid and lecanoric acid respectively. The details of the structures have now been established by their syntheses involving the preparation of the esters of the carboxylic acids with cis-2-butene-1,4-diol and hydroxylating the ethylenic groups by means of Milas' reagent.
