The ethanol extract of the fruits of Ligustrum lucidum was shown to have inhibitory effects on the hemolysis of red blood cells induced by 2, 2′-azo-bis-(2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride. Bioassay-guided analysis led to the isolation of ten secoiridoid glucosides. Two of them were new, lucidumosides C and D. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. The other eight compounds were identified as oleoside dimethyl ester, ligustroside, oleuropein, nuezhenide, isonuezhenide, neonuezhenide, lucidumoside A and lucidumoside B. Five compounds, oleoside dimethyl ester, oleuropein, neonuezhenide, lucidumoside B and lucidumoside C, exhibited strong antioxidant effect against hemolysis of red blood cells induced by free radicals.
