The photoreaction of morusin trimethyl ether (Ia) afforded hydroperoxide (II), the structure of which was confirmed on the basis of spectral and chemical data. On the other hand, the photoreaction of morusin-2’,4’-dimethyl ether (Ib) did not occur. The possible mechanism of the photoreaction of Ia is discussed being based on the several experimental results obtained here.
