Three new C15 polyacetylenes 1, 2, and 3, together with two known C15 polyacetylenes 4 and 5 were isolated from the seedlings of sunflower Helianthus annuus L. cv Russia, and their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic data and chemical means. Compounds 1, 2, 4, and 5 exhibited antimicrobial activity against Staphyrococcus aureus and especially compound 1 showed strong activity.
