Seven new and three known bisresorcinols, grevirobstol A (=5,5′-((6Z,9Z)-hexadeca-6,9-diene-1,16-diyl)bisresorcinol; 8), 5,5′-[(8Z)-hexadec-8-ene-1,16-diyl]bisresorcinol (9), and 2-methyl-5,5′-[8Z)-hexadec-8-ene-1,16- diyl]bisresorcinol (10) were isolated from the stems of Grevillea glauca. The new compounds were identified on the basis of spectroscopic data as (Z)-6,7-didehydroglaucone A (1), glaucones A and B (2 and 3, resp.), 2-(3-hydroxyisopentyl)bisnorstriatol (4), 2-(3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl)bisnorstriatol (5), 2′-methylgrebustol A (6), and glaucane (7).
