Abstract

Abstract The aerial part of Melanoselinum decipiens yielded, in addition to the previous known decipienin A, two sesquiterpene lactones whose structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. Both substances belong to a stereostructural type of eudesmanolides which is described for the first time from Umbelliferae. The stereochemistry of one of the lactones was confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. The biogenetic relevance is discussed.
