The discovery of the tropolones puberulonlc acid (I) and puberulic acid (II) (Birkinshaw and Raistrick, 1932) and of stipitatic acid (IV) (Birkinshaw et al, 1942) opened an area in chemistry which presented a difficult structural problem until the tropolone ring system was postulated (Dewar, 1945) as a structural feature of these mold metabolites.
