A new prenylated dihydrochalcone, gancaonin J and a homoisoflavanone, gancaonin K, along with fourteen known compounds were isolated from the root of Glycyrrhiza pallidiflora MAXIM. Structures of gancaonins J and K were shown to be 1 and 2, respectively, on the basis of spectral evidence. Gancaonin K (2) and 2’-O-methyllicodione (17) being isolated from the same material, thelatterseems to be a biogenetical precursor of 2. From the aerial parts of G. pallidiflora MAXIM., two known phenolic compounds were isolated.
