Coumarins from Polygala paniculata
26 February 2007 (online)
From the petrol ether and chloroform extracts of Polygala paniculata L. (Polygalaceae), possessing both molluscicidal and antifungal properties, four coumarins were isolated by flash chromatography and centrifugal thin-layer chromatography. They were identified as aurapten, phebalosin, murrangatin and 7-methoxy-8-(l,4-dihydroxy-3-methyl-2-butenyl)coumarin, a new natural product. Among these compounds phebalosin showed biological activity, but proved to be very unstable in aqueous solution.
