A new compound, 3-(6,7-dimethoxyisoquinolin-1-yl)-4,7-dimethoxy-3-methylisobenzofuran-1(3H)-one (1) named alkterlactone was isolated from Pinellia ternata, together with four known compounds N-trans-feruloyloctopamine (2), 2'-O-methyladenosine (3), 5'-S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine (4) and 2'-deoxy-thymidine (5). Compounds 2–5 were isolated for the first time from Pinellia ternata. The structures of these compounds were elucidated and characterized on the basis of 1D NMR, 2D NMR and MS data.
