The leaves of Boenninghausenia albiflora afforded an insecticidal coumarin which was identified as murraxocin (7‐methoxy‐8‐[1′‐ethoxy‐2′‐hydroxy‐3′‐methyl‐but‐3′enyl]‐coumarin) (1), on the basis of extensive 1‐ and 2‐dimensional NMR experiments. This compound has previously been isolated from Murraya exotica but this is the first report of the full 1H and 13C data for this compound. This natural product was evaluated against important forest insect pests and was active against Plecoptera… Expand
