Nine water-soluble chromone derivatives, including chromone-2-carboxylic acids, 2-methylchromones and their structural hybrids, were isolated from aerial tissues of Halenia elliptica (Gentianaceae), six of which were previously unknown. Their structures were elucidated by comprehensive mass, 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic analyses and chemical derivatization. Two unstable structural hybrids of chromone-2-carboxylic acids and 2-methylchromones, viz. 3-acetyl-8-hydroxy-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one-2-carboxylic acid (halenic acid C) and 2-(8-hydroxy-2-methyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one-3-yl)-2-oxoacetic acid (halenichromone A), were isomers and were interconvertible. The proposed mechanism of their acid-catalyzed isomerization in aqueous solvent is described. In addition, 2-methylchromones, 8-hydroxy-2-methyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one, and 8-methoxy-2-methyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one, were found to exhibit a strong inhibitory effect towards hepatitis B virus (HBV) in vitro without showing significant cytotoxicity.
