Phytochemical investigation of the methanolic extract of Croton tonkinensis afforded two known kauranes (1, 2), eight new ent-kauranes (3-10), and 16 known ent-kauranetype diterpenoids (12-27). In addition, 30 known compounds were identified by comparison of their physical and spectroscopic data with reported data. Among the isolated compounds, ent-18-acetoxykaur-16-en-15-one (20) displayed the most significant inhibition of superoxide anion generation and elastase release.
