Linderaggrine A (1) was characterized from the roots of Lindera aggregata and its chemical structure was established by the spectral analysis and chemical transformation. The chemical preparation of 1 and its isomer 2 provide unambiguous evidences for the structural determination of the naturally isolated compound. In addition, the inhibition of superoxide anion generation and elastase release by human neutrophils in response to FMLP/cytochalasin B of these synthetic products had been examined and among the tested compounds, linderaggrine A (1) displayed significant potential against the superoxide anion generation.
