Two new sesquiterpenoids peltopterins A and B (compounds 1
) and fifty-two known compounds were isolated from the methanol extract of P. pterocarpum
and their chemical structures were established through spectroscopic and mass spectrometric analyses. The isolates 40
exhibited potential inhibitory effects of superoxide anion generation or elastase release.
