Five new isoprenoids, 3,4,8,16-tetra-epi
), 1,15β-epoxy-deoxysarcophine (2
-sarcophine (3), ent
(4), and 16-deacetyl- halicrasterol B
(5) and ten known compounds 6‒15
, were characterized from the marine soft coral Sarcophyton glaucum
, collected off Taitung coastline. Their structures were defined by analyzing spectra data, especially 2D NMR and electronic circular dichroism (ECD). The structure of the known compound lobocrasol (7
) was revised. Cytotoxicity potential of the isolated compounds was reported, too.
