Sphagnum palustre is a semi aquatic moss. S. palustre has been used as Korean traditional medicine to treat cardiac pain and stroke. This study was carried out to analyze phytochemical constituents of S. palustre and investigate the biological activity for the promotion of human health. At first, we isolated seven compounds from the ethanolic extract of this plant, and their structures were characterized by spectroscopic methods. Their structures were characterized to be Coumarin(1), Caffeic acid(2), Quercetin(3), Astragalin(4), Luteolin(5), Chlorogenic acid(6), Rutin(7) were for the first time reported from this source. The ethanol extract from S. palustre which was tested for its anticancer activity against three human tumor cell line by in vitro assay.
