More than fifty polyacetylenic compounds produced by micro-organisms have been isolated and characterised since the discovery of the allenic polyacetylene, mycomycin, in 1952. A review of the sixteen natural allenic polyacetylenes which have been isolated and their structures elucidated, is included. This review is followed by a summary of the methods published by Brewster in 1959 for the correlation of observed optical rotations with the configurations of coat pound a having simple asymmetric centres.
