Abstract

A new chemotype was found in Scoparia dulcis from Taiwan, China and Thailand based on the diterpene composition. The new chemotype was characterized by the presence of scopadulciol and scopadiol. The structure of a new diterpene was determined to be 6-benzoyl-labda-8(17),13-diene-15,18-diol by spectroscopic methods.
