A new kaurane diterpene, 16α,17-acetonide-3α-hydroxykauran (1), and four known octadecenoic acid derivatives,12,13,17-trihydroxy-9(Z)-octadecenoic acid methyl ester (2), 12,13,17-trihydroxy-9(Z)-octadecenoic acid (3), tianshic acid (4), and 1,3-divernolin (5), were isolated from the seeds of Vernonia anthelmintica. Their structures were elucidated based on extensive spectroscopic analysis.
