Two new non-halogenated sesquiterpenes, snakeol (1) and snakediol (2) were isolated together with 9 known sesquiterpenes such as (R,Z)-33-dimethyl-5-methylene-4-(3-methylpenta-24-dien-1-yl)cyclohex-1-ene (3), palisol (4), pacifigorgiol (5), palisadin D (6), palisadin A (7), palisadin B (8), 5-acetoxypalisadin B (9), debromolaurinterol (10) and α-bromocuparane (11) from the red algae Laurencia snackeyi. The structures of two new metabolites were determined from their spectroscopic data (IR, 1D and 2D NMR and MS). Compounds 1, 2, 10 and 11 showed strong antibacterial activity against selected human clinical bacterial pathogens.
