The discovery of the mold metabolites puberulonic acid (I) and puberulic acid (II)(1) and stipitatic acid (III)(2) presented a difficult structural problem to organic chemistry until, in 1945, Dewar(3) made the ingenious proposal of the existence of tropolone (IV) as a new aromatic system. Dewar(3) correctly assigned the structure III to stipitatic acid. The work of Todd and his collaborators(4) led to I for puberulic acid. Aulin-Erdtman(5,6) and Todd et al.(7) showed puberulonic acid to be II. Recently, a fourth mold tropolone, stipitatonic acid, has been characterized(8-10) as V.
