The roots of the Fijian plant Euphorbia fidjiana Boiss yielded two oxygenated ent-atisanes. Their structures and reltive stereochemistry were determined by high field and two dimensional NMR studies. The extract containing these two compounds shows powerful activity in the reverse-transcriptase screening test for potential anti-AIDS drugs.
