Abstract: A new phenolic, bis(6-hydroxy-2,3,4-trimethoxylphen-1-yl)methane (1) and a new butanedioate, butylmethyl succinate (2), along with twenty-nine known compounds including one naphthoquinone derivative, two chromanones, eight benzenoids, one lignan, one tocopherol, and sixteen triterpenoids were isolated from the stems of Diospyros maritima. epi-Isoshinanolone (3) was isolated in pure form for the first time. In addition, 5,7-dihydroxy-2-methylchomanone (4) was isolated from a natural source for the first time. Their structures were established on the basis of spectroscopic data as well as direct comparison with authentic samples.
Keywords: Diospyros maritima; Ebenaceae; bis(6-hydroxy-2,3,4-trimethoxylphen-1-yl)methane; butylmethyl succinate
