Abstract

The constituents of the flower buds of Magnolia kobus DC. and M. salicifolia MAXIM. have been investigated. We isolated and identified six bis-tetrahydrofuran-type and three tetrahydrofuran-type lignan derivatives from M. kobus, and one bis-tetrahydrofuran-type lignan and eight phenylpropanoid-type derivatives from M. salicifolia. The structures of these compounds were elucidated on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence.

Keywords
