Symplocos setchuensis Brand belongs to the Symplocaceae family. This species is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical areas, such as south of the Yangtze River, China [1]. Some Symplocaceae plants are used in traditional medicine to treat a number of diseases including malaria, nephritis, snake bite, diarrhea, dysentery, menorrhagia, and asthma. There were only a few previous reports regarding the isolation of phenolics, glucose, and sucrose from Symplocos genus (Symplocaceae) [2, 3, 4]. However, the chemical constituents of S. setchuensis Brand have not been reported before. As part of our continuing recearch on bioactive compounds from Chinese medical plants [5, 6, 7, 8, 9], a systemic phytochemical investigation on S. setchuensis has been carried out.

Symplocos setchuensisBrand was collected in Jinfoshan Chongqin, P. R. China, in September 2014 and identified by Prof. Bin Wu (Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, P. R. China). A voucher specimen (SS-20140901) has been deposited...
