Chromatography of methanolic extract of Pachygone ovata over silica gel afforded pachygonamine (1) and N-methylpachygonamine (2) which were characterized as new dibenzo-p-dioxin biphenyl bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloids by a consideration of physicochemical data and conversion to N-methyltiliamosine (7). In addition, tiliamosine (3) was isolated for the first time from nature as the free base instead of the previously isolated N-acetylamide (4).
