(±)-Latifolin dimethyl ether has been synthesized by coupling 1,2,4-trimethoxybenzene and o-methoxycinnamyl cation. The isomeric benzylstyrene is also a product of the reaction. Among the possible biogenetic routes for the related compounds present in Dalbergia latifolia the most likely steps seem to be phenylcinnamic esters and 4-phenylcoumarins followed by stages of reduction. The alternative of cinnamyl cation functioning will limit the biosynthesis only to latifolin type of compounds.
