Abstract

Two new polyphenolic compounds, melitric acids A (2) and B (5), were isolated from the aboveground part of Melissa officinalis (Labiatae) and their structures, consisting of three caffeic acid units, were determined from chemical reactions and spectral data. Rosmarinic acid (1) was also isolated.
