A new self-gelating triterpenoid natural product has been isolated from the bark of the silver fir, Abies alba. The structure is desmethylabietospiran (3) on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence. Also reported is a more efficient isolation procedure of abietospiran (1) from A. alba.

Self gelating isoracemosol A, new racemosaceramide A, and racemosol E from Barringtonia racemosa
Phytochemical investigation into the CHCl3 extract of the fruits of Barringtonia racemosa resulted in the isolation of two new metabolites along with isoracemosol A and betulinic acid as known metabolites, which leads to the unexpected agglomerated porous-like morphology.
Structural Characterization of Terpenoids from Abies holophylla Using Computational and Statistical Methods and Their Biological Activities.
Three new diterpenoid and three new triterpenoids were isolated from the trunk of Abies holophylla together with 19 known terpenoids and tested for their cytotoxicity against four human cancer cell lines and for their neuroprotective activity in C6 cells through induction of nerve growth factor.
Three New Lanostanoids from the Mushroom Ganoderma tropicum
Three new lanostanoid triterpenes were isolated from the n-BuOH extract of the fruiting bodies of the mushroom Ganoderma tropicum and their structures were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, as well as HR-EI-MS data.
Eight pairs of epimeric triterpenoids involving a characteristic spiro-E/F ring from Abies faxoniana.
Five pairs of new epimeric lanostane-type triterpenoids, abiespirones A-D and G, with spiro-B/C and -E/F ring systems were isolated from Abies faxoniana as inseparable mixtures of C-23 epimers in a specific proportion, and the structures of compounds 1-8 were elucidated by analysis of the NMR spectra and single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
