[4]Peralkylated diazabutadienes ( 1 ) (R = CH3, R' = cyclopropyl, cyclohexyl, or benzyl) can be obtained in 10-35 yo yield

leads to the expectation that bisdiazabutadienenickel(0j will
exist (cf. also [7]).

After removal of the ammonia at -35 "C the products are
extracted with tetrahydrofuran as yellow solutions, whence
they are recovered by evaporation of the tetrahydrofuran
and drying in vacuo,(2 days at 40 "C) as T H F adducts ( 1 : 1 ) .
They decompose with blackening without melting at 40 to
45 "C (Sr) and 60 to 70 "C (Ba). The adducts are sensitive to
air and somewhat to light, reduce AgN03 to Ag, and are
soluble in ammonia but insoluble in benzene and hydrocarbons; they are unstable in solution. Their compositions
were proved by determination of the content of alkalineearth metal and by C-H analysis. The THF-free compounds
( I ) could not be obtained.
Only small amounts of hydrogen are obtained on hydrolysis
with moist methanol because of the stability of triphenylgermane against hydrolysis :

In the primary processes of photosynthesis, electrons are
transferred from water to triphosphopyridine nucleotide.
The rate of the electron transport is characterized by the rate
of the oxygen production which takes place simultaneously;
the intermediates can be identified by the wavelength of
absorption changes on irradiation with flashes of light. The
mechanism of the electron transport follows inter alia from
the analysis of the kinetics of absorption changesW A
cyclic and a non-cyclic phosphorylation can be coupled with
the electron transport [21.
The absorption changes at 478, 515, and 648 m p are caused
by a reaction ofchlorophyll-b (Chl-b). This reaction, however,
evidently does not participate directly in the electron transport 131. Addition of ethanol eliminates the absorption
changes of Chl-b without affecting those of Chl-aI, Cyt-f,
Cyt-b, and plastoquinone (PQ), or the oxygen production.
We have now found that the reaction of Chl-b is related
directly to phosphorylation coupled to electron transport :
The electron transport is not affected when the phosphorylation is blocked by a specific poison, such as desaspidine
[2,4J. Confirmation of these results is shown in Fig. 1 .

At desaspidine concentrations of 10-7 M the cyclic and the
non-cyclic phosphorylation (measured by the formation of
ATP) and the electron transport (measured by 02-production)
are unchanged. With 10-6 M desaspidine, cyclic phosphorylation is blocked, and only at 2 x 10-5 M non-cyclic
phosphorylation as well. The 02-production, i.e. the electron
transport, is not blocked at desaspidine concentrations below
2xlO-4M. The absorption changes of the participants of
electron transport such as Chl-at, Cyt-f, Cyt-b, and PQ
show the same dependence on the concentration of desaspidine as the 02-production. However, the reaction of Chl-b
parallels the behavior of the non-cyclic phosphorylation
(Fig. 1). Addition of ethanol also blocks phosphorylation
without interrupting the electron transport 151.
From the position of the absorption changes of chlorophyll-b
it can he supposed that a dissociation of H+-ions[sl from
chlorophyll-b takes place. Obviously phosphorylation and
this dissociation (pH-change) are related to each other.

Recent Results of Antibiotics Research
Ch. Tnmm, Base1 (Switzerland)
T o date, 14 antibiotics termed verrucarines and roridines [ I ]
have been isolated from Myrothecium verrucaria and M .
roridum. The principal products are antifungal and, in particular, potent cytostatic agents; however, they are also very
Verrucarine E, one of the minor N-containing metabolites, has
been assigned the structure of the hitherto unknown 4-acetyl2-hydroxymethylpyrrole (I). On basic hydrolysis, verrucarines A, B, J, and H, and roridines A , D, and E, yield the
same sesquiterpene alcohol, verrucarol (C15H2204), but they
differ in the products of acidic hydrolysis. Verrucarine A
(C27H3409) gives cis,trans-muconic acid and verrucarinolactone (C6H1003), verrucarine B (C27H3209) gives cis,transmuconic acid and 2,3-epoxy-3-methyl-5-valerolactone
(CsH802); verrucarine J (C27H3208) gives cis,trans-muconic
acid and the known 3-methyl-2-pentenolactone (anhydromevalolactone) (C6HsO) ; roridine A (C29H4009) gives
roridinic acid (C14H2207), roridine D (C29H3808) gives anhydroepoxyroridinic acid (C14H2007) ; roridine E (C29H3808)
gives anhydrororidinic acid (C14H2006); and verrucarine H
(C29H3608) gives 3-methyl-2-pentenolactone and myrothecinic acid (CsHloOs). The structures and stereochemistry of
the new lactones and dicarboxylic acids have been elucidated.
The constitutions of verrucarol (2) and roridine C (= trichodermol) (3) were derived by correlation with trichothecolone
and trichodermine [21.
degradation experiments showed that the radioactivity of the
verrucarinic acid was derived from C-2 of mevalonate.

Synthesis and Decomposition of Organic Peroxides

Numerous rearrangements were observed with verrucarol
and trichothecolone, some of which were discussed in detail.
Oxidative degradations and partial hydrolyses showed that
the above hydrolysis products are linked in the original antibiotics in the form of macrocyclic di- and tri-estersc31. For
instance, formulae (4) and (5) were derived for the two
principal metabolites verrucarine A and roridine A, respectively. These many-membered cyclic esters present a new
structural type.
Experiments on the biosynthesis of verrucarine A and roridine A with [2-14C]mevalonate show that mevalonate is a
biogenetic precursor of verrucarol and verrucarinic acid;

According to the “RH scheme”rl1 of oxygen attack on
organic compounds, the first products to be isolated are
alkyl hydroperoxides, in accordance with reaction (a). The
radicals initiating the chain reaction are formed, according
to Dulog, by dehydrogenation [reaction (b)]. The hydroperoxides act autocatalytically by partial decomposition into radicals [reactions (c) and (d)].
+ R*+.OOH
+ RO.+.OH
+ RO*+ ROO.+ HzO
Decomposition of hydroperoxides and peroxidation are
reactions of the same order: at very low concentrations they
are usually of the first order, at higher concentrations of the
second order (owing to dimerization). In ethers, hydroperoxides decompose at all concentrations by a reaction of the
first order; here adducts ROOH.R’OR” are present.
