A review article on the total synthesis of geranyl-resorcinols isolated from mushrooms of genus Hericium has been published in Synthesis.
This Short Review covers the total synthesis of tetraketide-based meroterpenoids, i.e. geranyl-resorcinols, isolated from the mushrooms of genus Hericium.
Some of these compounds are believed to be involved in the unique health-promoting effects of Hericium erinaceus.
Herein, more than seventy natural products identified so far have been classified into seven-types based on both assumed biosynthetic pathways and chemical structures, and the successful total syntheses are summarized according to the structural type.

With the support of a company, I was able to make the paper open access. Anyone can download and view it freely, so please take a look if you are interested.
