Two new natural products, a phenylpropanoid derivative characterized as 1-(3'-methoxypropanoyl)-2,4,5-trimethoxybenzene (1) and a prenylated hydroquinone, 2-(2Z)-(3-hydroxy-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dienyl)-1,4-benzenediol (2), have been isolated from the root bark of Cordia alliodora, Both compounds exhibited antifungal properties against the phlytopathogenic mold Cladosporium cucumerinum. The phenylpropanoid derivative (1), whose structure is closely related to beta-asarone, also demonstrated a marked activity against larvae of the yellow-fever-transmitting mosquito Aedes aegypti.
