Two novel homoisoflavans, 4’,7-dihydroxy- (4) and 4’,7-dihydroxy-8-methoxy- (5), were isolated from the resin “Dragon’s blood”, which is produced by Dracaena draco (Liliaceae). In the same resin were also identified 4’,7-dihydroxy- and 4’,5,7-trihydroxy-6-methylhomoisoflavanones (1) and (3), together with (2S)-4’,7-dihydroxy-3’-methoxy-8-methylflavan (8), (2S)-4’,5-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-8-methylflavan (9) and 3,4’-dihydroxy-7-methoxyflavone (10). Their structures were established on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and by synthesis.
