The trunk wood of an Ocotea species from the Atlantic coast of southern Brazil contains five new neolignans: rel-(1R,4S,5S,6S,7R,8R)-4-acetoxy-1-allyl-8-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxy-7-methyl-6-(3′,4′-methylenedioxyphenyl and 3′-methoxy-4′,5′-methylenedioxyphenyl)-bicyclo(3.2.1)oct-2-enes, rel-(1R,4S,5R,6S,7R)-4-acetoxy-1-allyl-3,5-dimethoxy-7-methyl-6-(3′,4′,5′-trimethoxyphenyl)-8-oxobicyclo(3.2.1)oct-2-ene and rel-(1S,4R,5S,6S,7R,8R)-4-acetoxy-1-allyl-8-hydroxy-5-methoxy-7-methyl-6-(3′4′-methylenedioxyphenyl and 3′-methoxy-4′,5′-methylenedioxyphenyl)-3-oxobicyclo(3.2.1)octanes. The latter two compounds are considered to be acid-catalysed demethylation products of the former pair of compounds.
