An acetone extract of root bark of Citrus grandis Osbeck gave a new flavone, honyucitrin, and a new coumarin, honyudisin, together with nine known coumarins and 11 acridone alkaloids. Their structures were determined by spectral methods and some chemical transformations. The antimicrobial activity of the compounds was also examined.
