Abstract: Isoprostanes (iP's), a new class of natural products isomeric with prostaglandins, are formed as the result of free radical oxygenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids. We have identified these iP's and developed analytical methodology to measure them in biological fluids. The approach we took, which led to the discovery and measurement of iP's, is as follows: (1) based on some biochemical and chemical considerations, we proposed possible structures for these isoprostanes; (2) we performed the total syntheses o…
