2,3,6-Tribromo-4,5-dihydroxybenzyl ethyl ether (1), a new bromophenol, was isolated from the ethanol extract of marine red alga Symphyocladia latiuscula, with a known compound, 2,3,6-tribromo-4,5-dihydroxybenzyl methyl ether (2). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis, including high-resolution mass spectroscopy, and 1 and 2-dimensional NMR techniques. Compounds 1 and 2 showed inhibitory activity against Staphyloccocus aureus with IC50 102 and 50 μg/mL, respectively.
