【Abstract】Ten compounds were isolated from the 95% aqueous EtOH extract of Clerodendrum bungei by a combination of various chromatographic techniques including column chromatography over silica gel, Sephadex LH-20, MCI, ODS, and semi-preparative HPLC. Their structures were elucidated as 11, 12, 16S-trihydroxy-7-oxo-17 (15 →16), 18 (4 →3)-diabeo-abieta-3, 8, 11, 13-tetraen-18-oic acid (1), 12S*, 13R*-dihydroxy-9-oxo-octadeca-10 (E)-enoic acid (2), clerodenoside A (3), trichotomoside (4), glycosmisic acid (5), 4'-O-methylscutellarein (6), neroplomacrol (7), butylitaconic acid (8), hexylitaconic acid (9), p-hydroxybenzonic acid (10) by their physicochemical properties and spectroscopic data. Compounds 1 and 2 were new natural products, while compounds 7–10 were obtained from the genus Clerodendrum for the first time, and compounds 3, 5, 6 were isolated from this plant for the first time.
