One novel tetranortriterpenoid derivative, xylocarponoid A, representing the first example of C28 skeleton limonoid, was isolated from the seeds of the Chinese mangrove, Xylocarpus granatum. Its C-1′-epimer, xylocarponoid B, was formed in CDCl3. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis. A plausible biosynthetic pathway of xylocarponoid A was proposed.
