Two new isoaurones, siamaurones A and B (1-2), together with three known isoaurones (3-5) were isolated from the stems of Cassia siamea. The structures of 1-5 were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including 1D- and 2D-NMR techniques. Compounds 1-5 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (anti-TMV) activity. As a result, compound 2 showed high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 31.8%, which is higher than that of Ningnanmycin (26.5%). Compounds 1, 3, and 5 showed modest anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 15.2%, 16.4%, and 12.8%, respectively.
