Five new sesquiterpene polyesters [1, 4, 6, 8, 9] based on the dihydro-β- agarofuran skeleton were isolated, together with twelve known compounds of the same type, from the fruits of Euonymus nanus and E. sachalinensis. The structures were elucidated by spectral methods and comparison with related compounds. Biological evaluation showed that 1β,6α, 15-triacetoxy-2β,9α-dibenzoyloxydihydro-β-agarofuran [3] and evonine [16] demonstrated insecticidal effects against Pieris brassicae.
