Six new flavonostilbenes (gnetoflavanols A, B, C, D, E and F) were isolated from the stem of Gnetum africanum and the root of G. gnemon. The structures of the compounds were determined by spectroscopic analysis. The antioxidant activity of the compounds on lipid peroxide inhibition and superoxide scavenging activity were also investigated.
