The mangostin derivatives 3-10, were synthesized by halogenation, electrochemical oxidation, and mCPBA oxidation of α- and γ-mangostins (1, 2). Among them, the hydroxyl 9 and the benzopyran 10 derivatives produced by mCPBA, showed remarkable antiproliferative activities against human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMC) induced by platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF).
