A new poly-substituted benzaldehyde, 1, and a known compound quercetin (2) were isolated from the leaves of Lysimachia fordiana Oliv. The structure of compound 1, named fordianol, was determined as 2-heptyl-3,6-dihydroxy-4- methoxybenzaldehyde on the basis of spectroscopic methods. Fordianol did not inhibit the growth of SWO-38 (human brain neuroglioma), MCF-7 (human breast cancer) or HeLa (human cervical carcinoma) cell lines.
