Eight ellagitannins and related polyphenols, found in Casuarina stricta and Stachyurus praecox, were detected in the leaf of Psidium species. Five of them and a new polyphenol, named isostrictinin, were isolated from Psidium guajava. Most of these compounds were detected in several species of Myrtaceae, and 2, 3-hexahydroxydiphenoylglucose and 4, 6-hexahydroxydiphenoylglucose were found in some.
