1. Introduction
The genus Teucrium (Lamiaceae family), including over 300 species, is distributed all over the world, especially in the Mediterranean Basin[1]. So far, terpenes, sterols, flavonoids, iridoids, polyphenolic compounds, saponins,essential oils and alkaloids have been found in this genus. Moreover, they have been found to have antioxidant, antimicrobial and anticancer activities[24]. Teucrium viscidum Blume (T. viscidum), an annual herb, is used as a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to treat pulmonary abscesses, hematemesis, hemoptysis, traumatic injuries and bites of rabies-stricken dogs or venomous snakes[5]. In order to find novel bioactive products from TCM, a new triterpenoid 1 and six known compounds 27were isolated, 3,7-dimethyloct-1-ene-3,6,7-triol (2), 2,8-bornanediol (3), 1-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethane-1,2-diol (4), 2-(3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenyl)-propane-1,3-diol (5), indole-3-carboxylic acid (6), and 3-hydroxy-benzenemethanol (7). All the compounds(Fig. 1) were first isolated from the genus.

2. Experimental
2.1. General procedures
The rotation luminosity was measured on a Perkin Elmer PE-341LC. IR spectra were recorded on a Bruker Vertex 70 FT-IR spectrophotometer. HRESI-MS data were recorded with API QSTAR Pulsar spectrometer. NMR spectra were measured using a Bruker AM-400 spectrometer, and the shifts of 1H NMR and 13C NMR were referenced by the solvent peaks for C5D5N at δH 8.74, 7.58, 7.22 and δC 150.35, 135.91, 123.87. Silica gel powder (200–300 mesh, Qingdao Marine Chemical Inc., Qingdao, China), Amberchrom CG161M (75 μm, Rohm and Haas Company, Philadelphia, PA, USA), ODS (50 μm, YMC, Japan) and Sephadex LH-20 (Pharmacia biotech Ab, Stockholm, Sweden) were used for column chromatography. The HPLC (Agilent 1100 pump, Agilent UV detector), couple with a YMC column (250 mm×10 mm, 5 μm) was employed in the present study. TLC was performed on a silicone GF254 board in UV light (254 nm or 356 nm) or with 95% ethanol sulfuric acid solution, and then spray spots were heated.
2.2. Plant materials
T. viscidum were collected in Shiyan City, Hubei Province of China, in June 2010. The plant was identified by Changgong Zhang (Huazhong University of Scienceand Technology). The voucher specimen (No. 20100616)has been deposited at the herbarium of Hubei Key Laboratory of Natural Medicinal Chemistry and ResourceEvaluation, School of Pharmacy, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
2.3. Extraction and isolation
The whole plants of T. viscidum were extracted with 70% acetone for three times at the room temperature. The extracts of acetone were concentrated in vacuum. The residue was suspended in water and respectively partitioned with petroleum ether (PE), CHCl3 and EtOAc to get PE section, CHCl3 section and EtOAc section,respectively. The EtOAc partition (150 g) was subjected to a silica gel column and eluted with CHCl3MeOH (60:10:1, v/v) to produce five sub-fractions (F1-5).
F1 was separated with Sephadex LH-20 column and eluted with MeOH to afford three fractions (F1.1−1.3). F1.1 was subjected to RP-C18 gel and eluted with MeOHH2O (1:4, v/v), after purified with semi-preparative HPLC (MeOHH2O, 40:60, v/v) to afford compounds 1 (4 mg) and 2 (6 mg). Fraction 1.2 was separated with a Sephadex LH-20 column and eluted with MeOH to obtain compound 3 (9 mg).
F3 was subjected to a silica gel column and eluted with CHCl3MeOH (16:1, v/v) to get sub-fractions F3.1 and F3.2. F3.1 was separated on Sephadex LH-20 column and eluted with MeOH to get fraction F3.1.1, fraction F3.1.2 and F3.1.3. Fraction F3.1.2 was further separated with semi-preparative HPLC (MeOHH2O, 35:65, v/v) to afford compounds 4 (13 mg) and 5 (6 mg). Compound 6 (10 mg) was separated from F3.1.3 by ODS column and eluted with MeOH−H2O (30%−60%, v/v). Compound 7 (15 mg) was obtained from fraction F4 by ODS column and eluted with MeOH−H2O (25%−75%, v/v).
3. Structural identification
3.1. 4,?5,?8-?Trihydroxy-?6(7)-en-?decenoic acid γ-?lactone (1)
Compound 1 was yellow oil. Its molecular formula was determined to be C10H16O4 by HRESIMS atm/z 223.0930 [M+Na]+ (calcd. for C10H16O4 Na+, m/z 223.0941), revealing three degrees of unsaturation (Fig. 2). The IR spectrum indicated the presence of hydroxy group (3379 cm–1) and γ-lactone (1762 cm–1). The 1H NMR spectrum (Table 1) showed one tertiary methyl singlet (δH 0.88, t, J 7.6 Hz, H-10), three oxygenated methines(δH 4.46, ddd, J112.4Hz, J25.2Hz, J32.0 Hz, H-4;δH 4.11, t, J 6.4 Hz, H-5;δH 3.94,dd, J112.8Hz, J26.4 Hz, H-8) and two olefinic protons(δH 5.77, dd, J115.6Hz, J26.4 Hz, H-7;δH 5.65, dd, J115.6Hz, J26.4 Hz, H-6). In turn,the 13C NMR and DEPT spectra (Table 1) indicated the presence of an ester carbonyl (δC 180.4, C-1), two double bonds (δC 137.7, C-7; δC 129.4, C-6), three oxygenated methines (δC 84.9,C-4; δC 74.9, C-5; δC 74.4, C-8), three methylenes (δC 31.2, C-9; δC 29.5, C-2; δC 24.8, C-3) and one methyl (δC 10.3, C-10), suggesting that 1 was a chain compound with the double bound and lactone.

The1H-1H COSY (Fig. 3) showed correlations of C-2/C-3/C-4/C-5/C-6/ C-7/C-8/C-9/C-10. The correlationsof HMBC from H-7 (δH 5.77, dd, J115.6Hz, J26.4 Hz), H-6 (δH 5.65, dd, J115.6 Hz, J26.4 Hz) to C-8 (δc 74.4) and from H-5 (δH 4.11, t, J 6.4 Hz) to C-6 (δC 129.4) and C-7 (δC 137.7) showed the double bound between C-8 and C-5, The correlations of HMBC (Fig. 3) from H-2, H-3 to C-1 showed the presence of 1,4-γ-lactone. Therefore, HSQC, 1H-1H COSY, HMBC and NOESY analysis (Fig. 3) revealed that the structure of 1 was 4,?5,?8-?trihydroxy-?6(7)-en-?decenoic acid γ-?lactone.
