Three new xenicane diterpenoids 13 were isolated from a soft coral Xenia sp. together with the known xenicanes 47. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods and the structure of 1 was further confirmed by single X-ray diffraction analysis. Metabolites 17 showed weak cytotoxicity against HCT 116 cells and a dose dependent, anti-inflammatory effect in LPS/IFN-γ-stimulated inflammatory RAW 264.7 macrophage cells.
