The use of medicinal plants and folk medicine are wide spread in the world. In Africa the majority of local populations uses medicinal plants and goes to traditional healers in his search for medical care. Little has been done to validate traditional uses of plants and to evaluate the huge potential in new biological active compounds from the African flora. As part of our ongoing study of the plants of Angola, we report the isolation of new clerodanes, new iridoids and new 8,15-epoxylabdanes characterized by means of IR, 1HNMR, 13CNMR, 2D-NMR , HREIMS and X-ray analysis, with bactericide and cytotoxic.
