This research expresses the phytochemical study from the Myanmar edible fruit tree, Casimiroa edulis (Rutaceae). The result revealed that the isolation and identification of two furanocoumarins (bergapten 1 and isopimpinellin 2) from the stem bark of this plant. Their molecular structures were elucidated and identified by using NMR spectroscopy in combination with IR, UV and HRMS spectra data, respectively. Furthermore, these two compounds were investigated for their anti-diabetic activity. According to the result, bergapten 1 and isopimpinellin 2 are not essentially good for anti-diabetic activity. This is the first report of two furanocoumarins from the Myanmar edible fruit tree.
