New aurone epoxide, 2,10-oxy-10-methoxysulfuretin (14), and new auronolignan (15), named cotinignan A, were isolated by silica gel column and semipreparative HPLC chromatography from the methylene chloride/methanol extract of Cotinus coggygria Scop. heartwood. In addition, thirteen known secondary metabolites namely sulfuretin, 2,3-trans-fustin, fisetin, butin, butein, taxifolin, eriodictyol, 3',5,5',7–tetrahydroxyflavanone, 3',4',7-trihydroxyflavone, 3-O-methyl-2,3-trans-fustin, 3-O-galloyl-2,3-trans-fustin, β-resorcylic acid and 3-O-β-sitosterol glucoside were isolated as well. Their structures were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR, HR-ESI-MS, IR and UV. Ten out of eleven isolated flavonoids possess 7, 3' and 4' hydroxy groups. These structural features could be considered as chemotaxonomic characteristic of flavonoids from C. coggygria. Cotinignan A (15) represents new subclass of secondary metabolites - auronolignans.
