Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Two new chlorinated multiacylated 3,4-seco-grayanane diterpenoids, neopierisoids A and B (1 and 2), were isolated from flowers of the poisonous plant Pieris japonica and were identified from spectroscopic analysis and X-ray diffraction data. Both compounds showed obvious antifeedant activity against Pieris brassicae with an EC50 of 10.07 μg/cm2 for 1 and 5.33 μg/cm2 for 2, indications of toxic properties. Chlorinated 3,4-seco-grayanane diterpenoids in P. japonica may play a defensive role against herbivores.
