Abstract

The aerial parts of Boronia ternata var. elongata from western Australia has yielded three new 2-acyl-4(1H)-quinolinone alkaloids, characterised as 2-n-pentyl-4(1H)-quinolinone, 1-methyl-2-n-pentyl-4(1H)-quinolinone and 1-methyl-2-(1ξ-methyl)-propyl-4(1H)-quinolinone, as well as known alkaloids of this class and a furoquinoline alkaloid. Boronia alulata, from northeast Queensland, also yielded 2-n-pentyl-4(1H)-quinolinone together with the known 2-n-propyl-4(1H)-quinolinone. Both species are assigned to Boronia section Valvatae which, alone among the sections of Boronia, appears to be characterised by the presence of alkaloids.
