Chemical examination of the fruits of the Chinese mangrove plant, Xylocarpus granatum, resulted in the isolation and characterization of nine new limonoids, named xylocarpins A−I (1−5, 7−10), along with nine known limonoids. Xylocarpins A−E were designated as polyoxyphragmalins, xylocarpin I was identified as a phragmalin orthoester, while xylocarpins F−H represented mexicanolides modified by ring oxidation and unusual 9,10-bond cleavage. The structure of xyloccensin U was revised to be 6-dehydroxyxylocarpin D on the basis of 2D spectroscopic data.
