Chemical investigation of the gum resin of Ferula assa-foetida L. resulted in the isolation of a new sesquiterpenoid coumarin, 7-(((E)-5-((1S,3S,6S)-3,6- dihydroxy-2,2,6-trimethylcyclohexyl)-3-methylpent-2-en-1-yl)oxy) -2H-chromen-2-one (asimafoetidnol), together with several other known compounds. The structure of asimafoetidnol was established on the basis of spectroscopic analyses. Geometry optimization of the compound has been carried out using a DFT/B3LYP/3-21G* method.
