    Six bis-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene and 9,10-dihydrophenanthrene/(dihydro)stilbene derivatives, phochinenins G-L (1-6), were isolated from the whole plant of Pholidota chinensis. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic investigations (1D, 2D NMR and HR-EIMS). Owing to the sterically hindered rotation around the biaryl axis, some of these biaryl compounds can exist as a pair of enantiomers, but were isolated as racemates. Computed inversion barriers of selected atropisomeric derivatives suggested that phochinenins K (5), gymconpin C (7) and flavanthrin (9) have optically stable atropisomers. Their racemates were separated by HPLC on an optically active stationary phase, and stereochemically characterized on-line by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy (LC-CD coupling), in conjunction with quantum-mechanics CD calculations.
