The stem bark ofCaloncoba glauca has yielded three friedelane triterpenes of which two are characterized by the loss of C-30 and the presence of a C-27, C-15 lactone. They were identified, with considerable use of long-range CH coupling studies, as the known compound trichadonic acid (3-oxofriedelan-27-oic acid) and two new 30-norfriedelane derivatives, 3,27-dioxo-30-norfriedelan-20(29)-en-27,15α-lactone (caloncobalactone) and 3,27-dioxo-21β-hydroxy-30-norfriedelan-20(29)-en-17,15α-lactone (21β-hydroxycaloncoba lactone).
