Abstract

The Philippine mangrove plant Heritiera littoralis (Steraliaceae) has been used as a fish and spearhead poison. Crude extracts of this plant were shown to be toxic to the fish Tilapia nilotica. Four novel sesquiterpenes of the cadinance type with an unusual oxygenation pattern and an aromatic ring have been previously reported. A fifth novel sesquiterpene of this type which was assigned the name Vallapianin has been identified. The structure elucidation of Vallapianin is reported.
