Ten new lycodine-type alkaloids, named casuarinines A-J (1-10), along with eight known analogues (11-18), were isolated from the whole plant of Lycopodiastrum casuarinoides . The new structures were established by spectroscopic methods and chemical transformations. Casuarinines A-D (1-4) and J (10) are common lycodine alkaloids possessing four connected(More)
Seven new naturally occurring barrigenol-like compounds, camellianols A-G (1-7), and 10 known triterpenoids were isolated from the twigs and leaves of the cultivated endangered ornamental plant Camellia crapnelliana. According to the ECD octant rule for saturated cyclohexanones, the absolute configurations of camellianols D (4) and E (5) were defined. The(More)
Ten diterpenoids including three new abietanes (1-3) were isolated from the twigs and needles of Podocarpus imbricatus, an endangered conifer growing in a Cantonese garden. The new structures were established by means of spectroscopic methods. Among the isolates, 3β-hydroxy-abieta-8,11,13-trien-7-one (5), decandrin G (6), and 7,15-pimaradien-18-oic acid (8)(More)
Nine unexpected new flavonol glycoside cyclodimers in the truxinate (1-7, biginkgosides A-G, respectively) or truxillate [biginkgosides H (8) and I (9)] forms were isolated as minor components from the extract of Ginkgo biloba leaves. The new dimers possess an unusual cyclobutane ring formed by a [2+2]-cycloaddition between two symmetric (for compounds 1-5(More)
Four novel naturally occurring diastereoisomers of dinor-eudesmenes, named chloranthones A-D (1-4, resp.), were isolated as minor components from the EtOH extract of the aerial parts of Chloranthus elatior. The unprecedented framework was established using extensive 2D-NMR techniques. Their absolute configurations were deduced from the observed Cotton(More)
