Synoxazolidinone C is a new member of the synoxazolidinone family of compounds which are dibrominated guanidinium 4-oxazolidinones isolated from the sub-Arctic ascidian Synoicum pulmonaria. The compound was isolated along with synoxazolidinones A and B from the same ascidian extract. Spectroscopic methods revealed that the synoxazolidinone C differed from the other synoxazolidinones by an unprecedented bicyclic partial structure, containing an additional pyrrolidine ring. Synoxazolidinone C exhibited both antibacterial and anticancer activities.
