Abstract


Two novel diterpenoids, thecacorins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from Thecacoris batesii and their structures were established as ent-3b,20-epoxy-16-kaurene-3a,12b-diol and ent-15-beyerene-2b,3b-diol, respectively, on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis, especially, 1D NMR spectra, in conjunction with 2D experiments, COSY, NOESY, HMQC and HMBC.

 

KEY WORDS: Diterpenoids, Thecacorin A, Thecacorin B, Ent-3b,20-epoxy-16-kaurene-3a,12b-diol, Ent-15-beyerene-2b,3b-diol, Thecacoris batesii
