Three new diterpene esters with a tricyclic myrsinol-type skeleton have been isolated from Euphorbia decipiens Boiss. & Buhse. The structure elucidation of the isolated compounds was based primarily on 1D and 2D-NMR analysis, including COSY, HMQC, HMBC and NOESY correlations. The compound 1 showed inhibitory activity against prolyl endopeptidase and compound 2 showed analgesic activity.
