Three new prenylated isoflavones were isolated from the aerial parts of Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch. et DC. (Leguminosae) and the structures of the new compounds, gancaonins B, C, and D, were elucidated as 5,7,3’-trihydroxy-4’-methoxy-6-prenylisoflavone, (E)-5,7,4’-trihydroxy-8-(3-hydroxymethyl-2-butenyl)isoflavone, and (E)-5,7,3’-trihydroxy-4’-methoxy-8-(3-hydroxymethyl-2-butenyl)isoflavone, respectively. Gancaonin E, from the same material, was confirmed as 5,7,3’,4’-tetrahydroxy-8,5’-diprenylflavanone. Gancaonin A, 5,7-dihydroxy-4’-methoxy-6-prenylisoflavone, was isolated for the first time as a natural product. Four known phenolic compounds, scopoletin, formononetin, lupiwighteone, and sigmoidin B, were also isolated.
