Abstract

Spencermartinsia viticola is one of the most widespread Botryosphaeriaceae species isolated from grapevines in South Australia and New South Wales vineyards in Australia. A new phytotoxic dipyridine-butane-1,4-diol and a new diacrylic acid derivatives, here named spencertoxin (1) and spencer acid (2), were isolated from the culture filtrates of S. viticola isolate DAR78870 together with p-hydroxybenzaldehyde (3) and 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl) acetic acid (4). Spencertoxin and spencer acid were characterized as 2,3-di(pyridin-3-yl)butane-1,4-diol and (2Z,2′Z)-3,3′-(carbonylbis(oxy))diacrylic acid, respectively, by spectroscopic methods (essentially NMR and HRESIMS). Spencertoxin (1), p-hydroxybenzaldehyde (3) and 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl) acetic acid (4) showed phytotoxicity when the pure compounds were assayed on grapevine leaves of Vitis lambrusca and Vitis vinifera cv. Shiraz.
