The fruits of Myrsine africana afforded two new benzoquinone derivatives, methylvilangin and methylanhydrovilangin. On the other hand, from the fruits of Maesa lanceolata two more novel compounds; 2,5-dihydroxy-3-(nonadec-14-enyl)-benzoquinone and lanciaquinone were isolated. Their structural elucidation was achieved by spectroscopic measurements including 2D NMR experiments.
