Front Cover. Sinomenium acutum is widely distributed in Korea, Japan and China, and its rattan stem as a kind of traditional Chinese Medicine (Sinomenii Caulis) has a broad range of physiological activities such as anti-inflammation, anticancer and anti-arrhythmia. Furthermore, it has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and its symptoms in recorded history in China. Three new alkaloids (13), one new diphenyl ether (4), along with fifteen known alkaloids (519), were isolated from the rattan stems of S. acutum. The isolated compounds were tested for the anti-inflammatory potential by measuring the amount of NO production, compounds 4 and 5 had strong NO inhibitory activity as reported by C. Wang et al. in their research article at 10.1002/cbdv.202200334.
