The twigs of Dorstenia prorepens furnished the digeranylated chalcone, 5,30-(3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadienyl)-3,4, 20,40-tetrahydroxychalcone while Dorstenia zenkeri yielded the 30,40-(3-hydroxy-2,2-dimethyldihydropyrano)-4,20-dihydroxychalcone and a bichalcone. 4-Hydroxylonchocarpin was found in both plants. D. prorepens also yielded the known compounds: psoralen, bergapten, b-sitosterol and its D-glucopyranosyl derivative. D. zenkeri yielded p-hydroxybenzaldehyde, dorsmanin A, 4,20,40-trihydroxychalcone and 4,20,40-trihydroxy-30-prenylchalcone. Structures of the new compounds were established by UV, IR, MS and 2-D NMR analysis.
