A new amide, beilschamide (1), has been isolated from the stem of Beilschmiedia erythrophloia, together with seven known compounds, N-trans-feruloyltyramine (2), N-trans-feruloyloctopamine (3), vanillin (4), α-tocopheryl quinone (5), β-sitostenone (6), β-sitosterol (7), and 6α-hydroxystigmast-4-en-3-one (8). The structure of the new compound 1 was determined through spectroscopic and MS analyses. N-trans-Feruloyloctopamine (3) and beilschamide (1) exhibited cytotoxic effects with IC50 values of 10.3 and 21.2 μg/mL, respectively, against CCRF-CEM cell line.
