Three new dimeric hydrolyzable tannins, woodfordins A, B, and C, along with six known hydrolyzable tannins including oenothein B, a dimer which exhibited remarkable host-mediated antitumor activity, were isolated from an Indonesian crude drug, “Sidowayah” [dried flowers of Woodfordia fruticosa (L.) Kurz (Lythraceae)]. The structures of new dimers were elucidated by chemical and spectral methods.
