Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -77.691246 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

The conversion of 1-phenyl-7-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-hepta-1,3-dien-5-one to anigorufone was confirmed by feeding a [2-C13]-radiolabeled form of the reactant to Anigozanthos preissii root cultures [Holscher95]. This Diels-Alder type reaction is proposed to be a necessary intermediate step [Holscher95].
