Two known and four new quinoline and 4-quinolone type alkaloids were isolated from Rutu montana collected from Rommani (Morocco). The known compounds were 1-methyl-4-methoxy-2-quinolone and evolitrine. The structures of the new compounds were established from 1D and 2D NMR experiments including HMQC, HMBC and MS spectral methods as 2-(nonan-8-one)-(1H)-4-quinolone, 2-(nonan-8-one)-4-methoxy-quinoline, 2-(nonan-8-one)-N-methyl-4-quinolone and 2-(decan-9-one)-N-methyl-4-quinolone.
