Chemical constituents from the acetone extract of twigs of Manglietia hookeri were isolated and purified by various column chromatographic methods over silica gel and sephadex LH-20, and preparative TLC. The structures of these compounds were identified on the basis of physicochemical properties and spectral analysis, including NMR and MS spectra. Six eudesmane sesquiterpenes were obtained and their structures were identified as trans-eudesmane-4, 11-diol(1), β-eudesmol(2), (-) -10-epi-5β-hydroxy-β-eudesmol (3), epi-carrisone (4), 6-hydroxy-eudesm-4(14) -ene(5) and gynurenol(6). All the compounds were isolated from this plant for the first time. Furthermore, the 13C-NMR data of compound 3 were reported for the first time.

The phytochemical investigation of the root bark of Pseudolarix kaempferi yielded eight eudesmane-type sesquiterpenoids, including three new ones, 1α-hydroxyl-4(14)-en-β-dihydroagarafuran (1), 1α, 2α-diacetoxy-8β-isobutanoyloxy-9α-benzoyl oxy-15-β-(β-furancarbonyloxy)-4β, 6β-dihydroxy-β-dihydroagarofuran (7), and 1α-acetoxy-2 α-furancarbonyloxy-8β-isobutanoyloxy-9α-benzoyloxy-15β-(β-acetoxy)-4β, 6β-dihydroxy-β-dihydroagarofuran (8). Herein the new compounds 7 and 8 were reported as a mixture. The molecular structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis, including UV, IR, NMR, and MS, and comparison with the literature data.
