Abstract:Four unprecedented vibsane-type diterpenes, named cyclovibsanin A, 15-Omethylcyclovibsanin A, 15-O-methylcyclovibsanin B, and 3-hydroxy-15-O-methylcyclovibsanin A, were isolated from the leaves of Viburnum awabuki. Their unique tricyclo[6.3.2.00,0]tridecane structures and plausible biosynthesis of cyclovibsanins are discussed here.
