In the course of our studies on the chemical constituents of the leaves of Skimmia laureola, a new triterpene O-methyl cyclolaudenol (1) and a new coumarin, (+)-7-methoxy-6-(2'R-methoxy-3'-hydroxy-3'-methyl butyl) coumarin (2) were isolated. In addition five known coumarins, isogospherol (3), heraclenol (4), 5,8-dimethoxy coumarin-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one (5), 7-methoxy-6[2'-oxo-3'-methyl butyl] coumarin (6), and (+)-ulopterol (7) were also isolated for the first time from this plant. The structures were identified by spectroscopic studies and the stereochemistry at C-2' in compounds 3 and 4 were established by Horeau's procedure.
