ABSTRACT

A new naphthalene derivative, 1-methyl-2,3-methylenedioxy-6-naphthalenecarboxylic acid methyl ester (1), and a new alkaloid, ( +/- )-1-phenyl-2-imido-1-propanol (2), together with the four known compounds, ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, N-methylephedrine, and 6-methoxykynurenic acid, have been isolated from the stems of Ephedra sinica, a famous traditional Chinese herbal medicine. The structures of 1 and 2 were determined by spectroscopic methods, including 1D- and 2D-NMR experiments as well as HR-EI-MS analysis.
