The complete characterization of two compounds obtained from the acetone extract of Populus tremula knotwood has been was achieved using LC-DAD-MS, MS/MS, IR and NMR. The new compounds were unequivocally identified as a mixture of the ester isomers of the (E) and (Z) p-coumarate of 1-O-rutinose. The isomers showed the capacity to inhibit lipid peroxidation induced by tert-butylhydroperoxide and to trap peroxyl radicals, as determined by a chemiluminescence method. These new phenyl disaccharides also showed a significant ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value, i.e. 11.7 μM TE (Trolox Equivalents).
