In the course of studies for anti-plaque agents, novel procyanidin structure isolated from Artocarpus heterophyllus folium was established by thiolysis and spectroscopic analysis. The chemical structure was identified for $(-)-epiafzelecin-(4{\beta}{\rightarrow}8)-afzelecin-(4{\alpha}-8)-catechin$ containing the trimeric flavan-3-ols and molecular weight was 833[M-H] by FAB-MS negative ion method. The inhibitory effect on the glucosyltransferase activity was investigated, novel compound showed complete inhibition at 1.0 mM and inhibited on the glucosyltransferase noncompetitively.
