A new pyridine alkaloid from Zingiberis rhizoma

<p>A new alkaloid, named 2-methoxy-4-(2-(2-pyridine)-ethyl) phenol (<b>1</b>)<b>,</b> together with two known compounds, was isolated from Zingiberis rhizoma. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR spectra and MS spectra. Compound <b>1</b> exhibited substantial bioactivity against <i>Canidia albicans</i> ATCC 10231 with a minimum inhibitory concentration of 1.0 mg/mL.</p>
