Two new C18 dibenzocyclooctadiene lignans named heteroclitalignans A and B (1 and 3), one new C19 homolignan named heteroclitalignan C (4) and one new natural product named heteroclitalignan D (2), together with the four known lignans kadsurarin (5), kadsulignan E (6), d-epigalbacin, and meso-dihydroguaiaretic acid were isolated from the stems of Kadsura heteroclita. The structures of these compounds were characterized by extensive ID and 2D NMR spectral data analysis.
