Graphical Abstract:
 The topic of the seminar held in the Institute of Chemistry, Academy of Sciences of Moldova on 30th September in the frame of the joint Moldo-Italian seminar “New frontiers in natural product chemistry”, concerned the use of NMR techniques in the elucidation of natural products. Step by step, two marine compounds (Fulvyne C and Tritoniopsin A) belonging to different chemical classes have been analyzed, by using suitable NMR experiments. This powerful technique allowed the elucidation of compounds as fulvynes, long chain polyacetylenes with the same functional groups but differently located in the chain, as well as tritoniopsins, cyclic diterpenes with a new skeleton, providing further information on their relative and absolute stereochemistry.
