    Two serrulatane diterpenes, 3,8-dihydroxyserrulatic acid (1) and serrulatic acid (2), have been isolated from Eremophila sturtii through bioassay-guided fractionation. These compounds inhibit the inflammation pathway enzymes cyclooxygenase 1 and 2, and exhibit bactericidal activity against Staphylococcus aureus.
