4-Coumarate coenzyme A ligase (4CL) and chalcone synthase (CHS), the two pivotal enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of flavonoids were applied to combinatorially synthesize varied unnatural natural products. As result, 25 unnatural natural products including eight flavonoid analogues, 16 4-hydroxy-δ-lactones and one benzalacetone were synthesized by 4CL and CHS. The synthetic methodology would be useful for the construction of library of structurally diverse of small molecules.

Key words: plant polyketide synthases, unnatural natural products, 4-coumarate coenzyme A ligase, flavonoids, 4-hydroxy-δ-lactones
