Ainsliaea yunnanensis, which is one of the species of the genus Ainsliaea from the family Asteraceae, is mainly distributed in Yunnan, Sichuan, and Guizhou Provinces of China, has been used in Chinese folk medicine to treat rheumatism, lumbago, and gonitis [1, 2]. The main chemical constituents of A. yunnanensis are triterpenes, sesquiterpenes, phenolic acids and flavonoids, which have been reported previously [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]. In our chemical study on this plant, 37 compounds were isolated from the whole plants of A. yunnanensis.

The plant materials of A. yunnanensis were collected from Chuxiong, Yunnan Province during June 2013 and authenticated by Prof. Ceming Tan (Jiujiang Forest Herbarium, Jiangxi, China). A voucher specimen (No. 20130629) was deposited at the Department of Pharmacognosy of the Second Military Medical University.

The air-dried A. yunnanensis(15 kg) were extracted three times with 80% ethanol (150 L) under reflux. After removal of the solvent by evaporation...
