While I'm putting up odd chemical structures today, I thought I'd add this one, Alasmontamine A, from the latest Organic Letters preprint stream. Natural products scare me:
Anyone who wants to take a crack at this one synthetically, you just go right ahead without me. It is pretty much a dimer, though, so it's only about half as awful as it looks. Which is still enough. It doesn't seem to have much biological activity, but if you can sell it as something to do with green chemistry, nanotech, or alternative energy, you should be able to round up some money, right?
