In continuing research onthis source, two new sesquiterpenes ( 1 and 2) and ten knownterpenes (3-12) were further isolated from the MeOHextracts. The structures were elucidated by means of spectro-scopic methods and chemical evidence. Compound 1 was obtained as a colorless gum, and itsmolecular formula C

A New Naturally Occurring Racemic Compound from the Marine Red Alga Laurencia obtusa (Hudson) Lamouroux
A new sesquiterpene alcohol has been isolated as a racemate from the title alga. The absolute structure of each enantiomer resolved by means of HPLC using chiral supports, was determined by the
Oxygenated terpenoids from a formosan soft coral Sinularia gibberosa.
Three new oxygenated sesquiterpenoids, gibberodione, peroxygibberol, and sinugibberodiol, along with sarcophytol L, were isolated from a Formosan soft coral, Sinularia gibberosa, and found to exhibit moderate cytotoxicity toward a human liver carcinoma cell line.

Along with conduritol F glucosides, an 11-glucosyloxy-megastigmane and a monoterpenoid glucoside were isolated from C. liukiuense.
Antibacterial, Antioxidative and Anti-proliferative Activity against Human Colorectal Cell of Pimpinella brachycarpa
Pimpinella brachycarpa, called as cham-na-mul in Korea, is an edible popular herb. However, the study of biological activity of P. brachycarpa is still rudimentary in worldwide. In this study, from
Comparative anatomy of embryogenic and non-embryogenic calli frompimpinella brachycarpa
Anatomical differences between embryogenic and non-embryogenic calli of Pimpinella brachycarpa showed different regeneration capacities in their somatic embryo formation; whereas only a few shooted or rooted somatic embryos arose from the NEC.
