From the culture filtrates of Aspergillus sydowi two new metabolites, designated as sydonic acid and hydroxysydonic acid, have been isolated. Sydonic acid, C15H22O4, forms colorless needles, mp 158_??_159°C and hydroxysydonic acid, C15H22O5, forms colorless needles, mp 135_??_136°C. These metabolites are optically inactive. From the results of chemical and spectroscopic examinations it is concluded that sydonic and hydroxysydonic acids are represented by formulae I and II, respectively.
