Abstract

Two new furanoterpenoid derivatives, namely 4aαH-3,5α,8aβ-trimethyl-4,4a,9-tetrahydro-naphtho[2,3-b]- furan-8-one and 2-hydroxy-4aαH-3,5α,8aβ -trimethyl-4,4a,9-tetrahydronaphtho[2,3-b]-furan-8-one, were isolated from Siphoplochilus aethiopicus, a member of the family Zingiberaceae. Their structures were elucidated using high field NMR techniques.
