A novel sesquiterpenoid, rumphellaoic acid A (1
), was isolated from the gorgonian coral Rumphella antipathies
, and was found to possess a carbon skeleton that was obtained for the first time from a natural sources. The structure of 1
was elucidated by spectroscopic methods and this compound and was found to exert a moderate inhibitory effect on the release of elastase by human neutrophils.
