Bioassay-guided fractionation of extracts of the brown alga Sporochnus comosus led to the isolation of five new compounds, comosusols A−D (3−6) and comosone A (7). The structures of all isolated compounds were elucidated using standard one- and two-dimensional NMR techniques, as well as comparison with literature values. The cytotoxic activity of all compounds was investigated against a panel of human tumor and mammalian cell lines. These assays found eight of the nine compounds had GI50 values in the 8−63 μM range.
