Objective To study the chemical constituents from the residue left over the rectification of star anise oil (essential oil from Anisi Stellati Fructus). Methods Two compounds were isolated from the residue left over the rectification of star anise oil by various chromatographic techniques, such as silica gel, and Sephadex LH-20 column chromatography. Results Their structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and spectral data. A new compound was identified to be 4-hydroxy-3-(3-methylbut-3-en-2-yI) benzaldehyde (2), along with a known compound (E)-l, 4-bis (4-methoxyphenyl) but-3-en-2-one (1). Conclusion The NMR data of Compound 1 are first reported and Compound 2 is new one.
