Phytochemical investigations of the CH2Cl2/MeOH (1:1) extract of air-dried aerial parts of Chiliadenus montanus afforded eight metabolites, in addition to eight other previously reported compounds, of which two were isolated for the first time as free acids. Structures were established by spectroscopic methods, including HREIMS, 1H, 13C, DEPT, 1H-1H COSY, HMQC and HMBC NMR analysis. Antimicrobial activity against an array of common bacterial and fungal strains was measured via a colorimetric assay with minimal growth inhibition observed in the μg/mL range for one of the tested metabolites.
