Three new isoflavanones, named (3R)-5,7,2',3'-tetrahydroxy-4'-methoxy- 5'-prenylisoflavanone, (3R)-7,2',3'-trihydroxy-4'-methoxy-5'- prenylisoflavanone and (3S)-3,7,2',3'-tetrahydroxy-4'-methoxy-5'- prenylisoflavanone were isolated from the stembark of Geoffroea decorticans. The structures were confirmed by means of spectral analysis including 2D-NMR techniques.
