Abstract: To systematically study the chemical constituents in the rhizome of Acorus tatarinowii Schott, the seven compounds were identified by NMR spectroscopic methods and iden-tified as N-trans-coumaroyl tyramine(1), N-trans-feruloyl tyramine (2), N-trans-coumaroyl octopamine (3), N-trans- feruloyl octopamine(4), 2-trans-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-N-[2- (4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-methoxyethyl]-acrylamide(5), 2-trans-3- ((4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-N-[2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-methoxyethyl]-acrylamide(6),2-cis-3-((4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-N-[2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-methoxyethyl]-acrylamide (7). Compound 1-7 are amide alkaloids obtained from Acorus for the first time, and compound 7 is a new compound. Theory basis is provided for the further study on acorus tatarinowii.
