Hypersubones A and B (1, 2), two adamantane type polycyclic polyprenylated acylphloroglucinols possessing an unprecedented seco-adamantane architecture and a tetracyclo-[126.96.36.199,10.04,8]-tridecane core combined with a peroxide ring, respectively, were isolated from Hypericum subsessile together with three analogues (3-5). Their structures were determined by extensive NMR spectroscopic analysis, ECD calculations, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 2 exhibited significant cytotoxicities against four human cancer lines in vitro (IC50 0.07-7.52 mu M).
