Investigation of the leaves, branch, stem and root bark of Gonocaryum calleryanum resulted in the isolation of a new secoiridoid glycoside, gonocaryoside E, together with 14 known compounds. Their structures were elucidated by spectral analysis and chemical transformation. Gonocaryoside E was shown to be a derivative of kingiside in which the lactone ring was open, and with the 8-hydroxy group esterified with tiglic acid. Alkaline hydrolysis of these secoiridoids is discussed.
