Two new compounds from stem barks of Vepris heterophylla (Engl.) R. Let. (Rutaceae)
4-hydroxycinnamate ester namedn-triacontyl-4-hydroxy cinnamate (1) and long chain alkanoic ester named ntriacontylpropanoate (2), together with 4 known compounds were isolated from the stem bark of Vepris heterophylla. The structures of the two compounds were determined by comprehensive analyses of their 1D and 2D NMR, mass spectral (EI and ESI) data, chemical reactions, and comparison with previously known analogues.
