Two new xenicane diterpenoids, dihydroxeniolide-A and isoxeniatriacetate, were isolated from Okinawan soft coral of the genus, Xenia. The relative configurations of two new xenicane diterpenoids were determined based on spectroscopic analysis. The absolute configuration of dihydroxeniolide-A was determined using the modified Mosher’s method. The absolute configuration of isoxeniatriacetate was determined by chemical conversion.
