In continuation of our phytochemical survey of Lobaria pulmonaria has led to the identification of deoxystictic acid in this foliose lichen species for the first time. The isolated β-orcinol depsidone showed moderate anti-hydroxyl radical activity using fluorescence spectroscopy at in vitro conditions. Phytochemistry Aromatic secondary metabolite Anti-hydroxyl radical activity.
