Three new phenolics: ((7S)-8′-(benzo[3′,4′]dioxol- 1′-yl)-7-hydroxypropyl)benzene-2,4-diol (1), ((7S)-8′-(4′- hydroxy-3′-methoxyphenyl)-7-hydroxypropyl)benzene-2,4-diol (2) and ((8R,8′S)-7-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-8′-methylbutan-8-yl) -3′-methoxybenzene-4′,5′-diol (3), along with four known compounds (4-7) were isolated from the seeds of Myristica fragrans. Their chemical structures were established mainly by 1D and 2D NMR techniques and mass spectrometry. Their anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated against LPS-induced NO production in macrophage RAW264.7 cells.
