We report here the synthesis of isoquebecol, an unprecedented constitutional isomer of quebecol, a polyphenolic compound discovered in maple syrup. The methodology used to prepare isoquebecol involves, as key steps, the formation of a dibromoalkene from an α-ketoester precursor, followed by a double Suzuki-Miyaura reaction. The anti-inflammatory activity of isoquebecol was studied on macrophage cells by monitoring its ability to inhibit LPS-induced IL-6 secretion. Results show that this new compound has an improved bioactivity over that of its natural isomer...

Herein we report our results on the anti-inflammatory activity of quebecol, a polyphenolic compound discovered in maple syrup. Bioassays demonstrated that quebecol has an anti-inflammatory effect on LPS-induced NF-κB activation and inhibits the secretion of two pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-6 and TNF-α. We also prepared and tested precursors of quebecol and its derivatives corresponding to its substructures of interest, with the aim to study the structure-activity relationships. Comparing the results obtained for all tested compounds allowed the identification of the main moiety responsible for the anti-inflammatory activity of quebecol...

Simple and efficient synthesis of quebecol and a number of its analogs was accomplished in five steps. The synthesized compounds were evaluated for antiproliferative activities against human cervix adenocarcinoma (HeLa), human ovarian carcinoma (SK-OV-3), human colon carcinoma (HT-29), and human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cancer cell lines. Among all the compounds, 7c, 7d, 7f, and 8f exhibited antiproliferative activities against four tested cell lines with inhibition over 80% at 75 μM after 72 h, whereas, compound 7b and 7g were more selective towards MCF-7 cell line...
