Four new lignans, two of the polygamatin-type, named erlangerin A and erlangerin B, and two
related to podophyllotoxin, named erlangerin C and erlangerin D, were isolated from the resin of
Commiphora erlangeriana, a plant occurring in Ethiopia and Somalia. The structures of these compounds including their relative stereochemistry were elucidated on the basis of spectral evidence, chemical data, and X-ray crystallographic analysis.
