Abstract: Four new cembrane-type diterpenoids, sarcophyolides B–E (14), along with 11 known analogues were isolated from the soft coral Sarcophyton elegans. The structures of new compounds 14 were established on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical conversion. The new cembranoids sarcophyolides B (1) and lobocrasol were found to exhibit potent inhibition against A2780 human ovarian tumor cells.
Keywords: soft coral; Sarcophyton elegans; sarcophyolide; cembranoid; cytotoxicity
