    ..Macrosphelide D was not in this library, and so its assigned structure was incorrect. We determined its constitution by using NMR spectroscopy and its configuration by synthesizing four candidate stereoisomers. ..

    Curran D, Fairweather N. Quantitating the effect of an ortho substituent on cyclization and intramolecular hydrogen-transfer reactions of aryl radicals. J Org Chem. 2003;68:2972-4 pubmed
    ..Rate constants for all of these processes are high (>10(8) M(-)(1) s(-)(1)), and the rates are only marginally reduced (<33%) by the introduction of methyl group ortho to the reacting radical. ..
