A new oligostilbenoid derivative, diptoindonesin F (1), along with five known oligostilbenoids, (−)-ampelopsin A (2), (−)-α-viniferin (3), ampelopsin E (4), (−)-vaticanol B (5), and (−)-hemsleyanol D (6), were isolated from the methanol extract of the tree bark of Shorea gibbosa. The structure of the new compound was determined based on the analysis of spectroscopic data, including UV, IR, NMR 1-D and 2-D, and mass spectra. Cytotoxic properties of the isolated oligostilbenoids were evaluated against murine leukemia P-388 cells with the result that compounds 2 and 4 showed the highest cytotoxicity.
