Abstract

Three new constituents, including a p-menthane type monoterpene, trans-p-menthane-7,8,9-triol (1), an aromatic, 2,6-dihydroxy-3,4-dimethylbenzoic acid methyl ester (2), and a lignan, (+)-morrisonicolanin (3), were isolated from the low polar layer of heartwood extracts of Picea morrisonicola, and their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis. Of these compounds identified, 1 was obtained as its diacetylated derivative 1a, and 2 was the chemical entity first isolated from a natural source.
