Three new flavones (13), together with six known flavones (49), were isolated from the fruits of Vernicia fordii collected from Hunan province of China. Their structures were characterized by means of extensive spectroscopic analyses. Compounds 13 and 9 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (anti-TMV) activity. The results showed that compound 9 exhibited high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 32.6%. This inhibition rate is close to that of positive control (33.8%). Compounds 13 also showed potential anti-TMV activities with inhibition rates of 26.8%, 29.2%, and 25.7%, respectively.
