Two new metabolites, 2-methoxymethyl-3-pentylphenol (1) and 3-butyl-7-hydroxyphthalide (2), were isolated from the culture broth of Penicillium vulpinum along with four knwon phenols, gentisyl alcohol (3), 2-methylhydroquinone (4), 3-hydroxybenzyl alcohol (5), 6-methylsalicyclic acid (6), and epoformin (7). The structures of new metabolites were determined by analyses of their MS and NMR spectra. It was found that the cytotoxic activity of the culture broth of P. vulpinum was mainly due to epoformin (7) and 2-methylhydroquinone (4).
