Two new sesquiterpenoids, curcumanes E () and F (), were isolated from the rhizome of, and their structures and absolute configurations were examined using extensive spectroscopic analyses and ECD calculations. Interestingly, compoundsandare diastereoisomers possessing a rare sesquiterpenoid skeleton that has been reported only once before. Both curcumanes E and F exhibit significant vasorelaxant effects against KCl-induced contraction of rat aortic rings, with ECvalues of 5.10± 0.79 and 5.58 ± 1.77 μM, respectively. These findings enrich the data concerning this rare type of sesquiterpenoids and further indicate that these rare sesquiterpenoids can effectively reduce blood pressure.
