Dioxolides, a novel class of secondary metabolites were detected by a HPLC-diode array screening technique in the culture filtrate of Streptomyces tendue Tü 4042. The compounds show no biological activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Besides dioxolides, which consist of an unusual substituted dioxolane ring, anhydroshikimate and para-hydrobenzamide were detected by this technique. Both compounds were not yet described as natural products.
