- A new para-quinone-type flavan, (2S)-7-methoxy-3′,4′-dihydroxy-5,8-quinoflavan (1), together with three known compounds, were isolated from the leaves of Ilex centrochinensis. Their structures were elucidated by detailed spectroscopic analyses for new structure and in comparison with published data for known compounds. Moreover, the new compound was evaluated its cytotoxic and anti-inflammatory activities in vitro on LPS induced RAW 264.7 cells and the results showed that 1 has promising anti-inflammatory activities.
