Two unusual trinorsesquiterpenoids, urechitols A (1) and B (2), were isolated from the root extract of Pentalinon andrieuxii, a plant used commonly in Yucatecan traditional medicine to treat leishmaniasis. The structures of I and 2 were identified by interpretation of their spectroscopic data and chemical correlation reactions. The relative stereochemistry of I was confirmed through an X-ray crystallographic study.
