Mass-directed isolation of the CH2Cl2/MeOH extract from the bark of an Australian plant, Macropteranthes leichhardtii, resulted in the purification of a new phenylpropanoid glucoside, macropteranthol (1), together with four known analogues (25). The structure of compound 1 was elucidated by NMR and MS data analyses and quantum chemical calculations. Compounds 3 and 5 showed inhibitory activity against tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase I with IC50 values of ∼1.0 μM.
