A new oplopane-type sesquiterpenoid tussilagofarin (1) and a new chromone tussilagofarol (2), along with 18 known compounds 3-20, were isolated from the flower buds of Tussilago farfara. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR and HRESIMS data. Of the isolated compounds, oplopane- and bisabolane-type sesquterpenoids 1, 8-12, 15, and 16 were found to inhibit nitric oxide production in LPS-induced RAW 264.7 cells with IC50 values of 3.5-28.5 μM.
