Six aliphatic acid amides, ZP-amides A-F, were isolated from the pericarp of Zanthoxylum peperitum fruits. Six aliphatic acid amides (1-6) were isolated from the pericarp of Zanthoxylum piperitum fruits. MS and NMR spectroscopic investigation revealed that these compounds have a ketone and/or hydroxyl group(s) in the unsaturated aliphatic acid moiety of the structure of the amides. Combinations 3-4 and 5-6 are stereoisomers in terms of the relative configurations of their two asymmetric carbons.
