Abstract: A new bisbenzylisoquinoline, lancifoliaine (1), together with seven known alkaloids – N-allyllaurolitsine (2), reticuline (3), actinodaphnine, norboldine, pallidine, cassythicine and boldine – were isolated from the stem bark of Litsea lancifolia (Lauraceae). In addition to that of lancifoliaine, complete 13C-NMR data of N-allyl-laurolitsine (2) was also reported. The alkaloidal structures were elucidated by means of high field 1D- and 2D-NMR IR, UV, and LCMS-IT-TOF spectral data. N-Allyllaurolitsine (2) showed a moderate vasorelaxant activity on isolated rat aorta.
Keywords: bisbenzylisoquinoline; lancifoliaine; N-allyllaurolitsine; Lauraceae; vaso-relaxant activity
