The aims of this study were to complement the current knowledge on the antioxidative composition of alcohol extracts from the fruits of Lycium barbarum and to evaluate their antioxidant activities. Three new dimers of phenolic amides, named lyciumamides A (3), B (4), and C (5), together with two monomers, N-E-coumaroyl tyramine (1) and N-E-feruloyl tyramine (2), were isolated from the fruits for the first time with the help of activity-guided chromatography. Compounds 1-5 were evaluated for their antioxidant activities in scavenging 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl free radical and inhibiting lipid peroxidation in rat liver microsomes induced by ascorbate/Fe(2+), cumine hydroperoxide, or CCl4/reduced form of nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate, and the results showed that all of them exhibited strong activities, whereas compounds 1 and 2 were more potent than the reference tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole.
