Two new bicoumarins, named murradimerin A (1) and murramarin B (5) were isolated from the leaves of Murraya exotica (Rutaceae) collected in Ishigaki-island Japan. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data especially using 2D NMR spectrum. Naturally occurring bicoumarin connected two coumarin moieties by orthoester structure as in murramarin (5) is unusual type and murramarin B (5) is the first example not possessing furanocoumarin moiety.
