From the methanol extract of the Chinese crude drug “Sang-Bai-Pi” (Japanese name “Sohakuhi”), the root bark of Morus sp. (Moraceae), a 2-arylbenzofuran derivative was isolated and named mulberrofuran K. Its structure was shown to be 1 on the basis of the spectral and chemical evidence. Mulberrofuran K is optically active and regarded biogenetically as a variation of a Dlels-Alder type adduct of a chalcone derivative and a dehydroprenyl-2-arylbenzofuran derivative.
