The flowers of Cananga odorata afforded 4 and a mixture of 2 and 3. their structures were identified by NMR spectroscopy. The scent of the flowers is attributed to 2-4. Antimicrobial tests on 1-4, indicated moderate activities against P aeruginosa and A niger, and slight activities against E coli, B subtilis, C albicans, and T mentagrophytes.
