Herein reported are results of the chemical and biological investigation of red propolis collected at the Brazilian Northeast coastline. New propolones A-D (1-4), with a 3-[3-{[}(2-phenylbenzofuran-3-yl)methyl]phenyl]chromane skeleton; propolonones A-C (5-7), with a 3-{[}3-(3-benzylbenzofuran-2-yl)phenyl]-chromane skeleton; and propolol A (8), with a 6-(3-benzyl-benzofuran-2-yl)-3-phenylchromane skeleton, were isolated as constituents of Brazilian red propolis by cytotoxicity-guided assays and structurally identified by analysis of their spectroscopic data. Propolone B (2) and propolonone A (5) display significant cytotoxic activities against an ovarian cancer cell line expressing a multiple drug resistance phenotype when compared with doxorubicin.
