Seven new compounds including three flavanone glycosides, visartisides A-C (1-3), three glycoside acyl esters, visartisides D-F (4-6), and one diphenylpropane glycoside, (4'-hydroxy-2',3',6',3"-tetramethoxy-l,3- diphenylpropane)4"-O-/β-D-glucopyranoside (7), along with four known flavanone glycosides (8-11) were isolated from the leaves and stems of Viscum articulatum. The structure elucidation of 1-7 was based on spectroscopic data analysis. Biological evaluation showed that 1, 2, and 10 exhibited antioxidant activity using a DPPH method and that compounds 1, 3, and 11 were active in a lipopolysaccharide-induced nitric oxide assay.
