Abstract: A new germacrane-type norsesquiterpenoid, 1-acetoxy-germacra-5E,10(14)-diene-4-one (1), as well as three known compounds, were isolated from the organic extracts of a Bornean soft coral Nephthea sp. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data analysis.
Keywords: germacrane-type sesquiterpenoid; Nephthea sp.; Nephtheidae; soft coral
