Abstract

Nine 9,10-dihydrophenanthrenes, three phenanthrenes and a related pyrene have been isolated from the wetland plant Juncus acutus. The structures have been attributed by means of their spectral data and chemical correlation. 5-(1-Ethoxy-ethyl)-2-hydroxy-7-methoxy-1,8-dimethyl-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene and 5-(1-phytoxy-ethyl)-2-hydroxy-7-methoxy-1,8-dimethyl-9, 10-dihydrophenanthrene, 2,7-dihydroxy-1-methyl-5-vinylphenanthrene, 2,7-dimethoxy-1,6-dimethyl-5-vinylphenanthrene and 2,7-dihydroxy-1,6-dimethylpyrene are described for the first time. Many of the compounds showed in vitro phytotoxicity against Selenastrum capricornutum, a microalga used in aquatic tests. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
