The twigs of Dorstenia angusticornis and Dorstenia barteri var. subtriangularis yielded 16 compounds. Two novel diprenylated chalcones: 3,50-di-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut-3-enyl)-4,20,40-trihydroxychalcone, 3, 4-(2,2-dimethylpyrano)-30-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut- 3-enyl)-20,40-dihydroxychalcone and the known stipulin were isolated from both species. 3-(2-Hydroxy-3-methylbut-3-enyl)- 50-(3,3-dimethylallyl)-4,20,40-trihydroxychalcone and the known compounds: 4-hydroxylonchocarpin, kanzonol B, bartericins A, B, C and 30-(2-hydroxy -3-methylbut-3-enyl)-4,20,40-trihydroxychalcone were isolated from D. barteri while the known compounds: gancaonin Q, paratocarpins C, F, and lupeol were obtained from Dorstenia angusticornis. b-Sitosterol and its b-D-glucopyranoside were isolated from both species. Structures of these secondary metabolites were established using spectroscopic analysis, especially, NMR spectra in conjunction with 2D experiments, COSY, HMQC and HMBC.
