Abstract Three new oleanene-type triterpenoids, dillenic acids A , B , and C , and two known compounds, 3-oxoolean-1,12-dien-30-oic acid  (a new natural product) and the lupene derivative betulinaldehyde, have been isolated from the Papua New Guinean medicinal plant Dillenia papuana. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated as 2 alpha-hydroxy-3-oxoolean-12-en-30-oic acid, 2-oxo-3 beta-hydroxyolean-12-en-30-oic acid and 1 alpha-hydroxy-3-oxoolean-12-en-30-oic acid. The 1H- and 13C-nmr data of all new compounds were assigned unambiguously using a variety of 2D nmr experiments including 1H-1H-COSY, HMQC, HMBC, and NOESY experiments. Of these compounds, 1-4 showed antibacterial activities against Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, and Micrococcus luteus.
