Chemical study of four samples of Ligularia brassicoides collected in Sichuan Province of China afforded 18 compounds, five of which were new. LC-MS profiles were somehow similar to each other, although the compound ratio was slightly different. One of the new compound was a Diels-Alder adduct between franoeremophilan-10 beta-ol and methacrylic acid.

Four new eremophilane type sesquiterpenoids, a new bakkane type sesquiterpenoid, and a new secoeremophilane type sesquiterpenoid were isolated from Ligularia brassicoides Hand.-Mass. (Asteraceae) collected in China, and were an epoxy lactone derived from 6-acyloxyeuryopsin 1, 6-acyloxy-9oxoeuryopsin 2, 6-acyloxy-9-oxofuranoeremophilane 3, 6-acyloxyeuryopsin 4, 6-acyloxy bakkane type epoxy lactone 5, and secovirgaurenol 6-O-(2'-hydroxymethyl)acrylate (6), respectively. All but one had a 2'-hydrox...

The chemical and genetic diversity of Ligularia species in the Hengduan Mountains area of China is reviewed. A hypothesis that the production of furanoeremophilanes is ecologically advantageous is proposed.

Twenty-six eremophilane-type sesquiterpenoids, including six new compounds, were isolated from the title species. One of the new compounds, kanaitzensol, suggested the presence of an enzyme for the conversion of eremophil-7(11)-en-8-one derivative to furanoeremophilanes. The plant was collected at 15 locations in Yunnan Province of China and found to be diverse with respect to its sesquiterpenoid composition. DNA sequencing also revealed a large intraspecific diversity of the plant. (c) 2008 Els...

The ether extract of the liverwort Chiloscyphus polyanthos afforded sesquiterpenoids which are enantiomeric to those found in another liverwort Lepidozia vitrea. The absolute configurations of the sesquiterpenoids found in the title species were determined by spectroscopic evidence, chemical derivatization and /or X-ray crystallographic analysis.

Abstract The petrol-soluble fraction of the methanol extract of Hertia cheirifolia yielded six sesquiterpenoid compounds, the known 8β-methoxy-10β-hydroxyeremophilenolide, 10β-hydroxyeremophilenolide, 8β,10β-dihydroxyeremophilenolide and bakkenolide A, and the new 6α,8β-dimethoxy-10β-hydroxyeremophilenolide and 3β-angeloyloxy-10β-hydroxyeremophilenolide.

Abstract The aerial parts of Euryops arabicus afforded in addition to several known furoeremophilanes four new ones as well as four eremophilanolides, two seco derivatives and a rearranged spiro lactone. Furthermore two quercetin derivatives and an unusual diester of glucose were present. The structures were elucidated by high field NMR techniques and the biosynthesis of the unusual compounds is discussed.

Mass spectral fragmentations of furanoeremophilane derivatives bearing oxygen-function on B ring were investigated. It was found that mass spectra measured by direct inlet system gave characteristic retro-Diels-Alder fragmentations, while indirect introduction of the samples afforded intense peaks at m/e 159 and m/e 145 containing the furan moiety. Fragmentation patterns of other poly-functional derivatives were examined by measurements of accurate masses and metastable ions.

Abstract An Australian member of the tribe Senecioneae, Bedfordia salicina , contains besides known compounds new dimeric eremophilenolides, new kolevane derivatives, a kaurenic acid and several further sesquiterpenes, most of them related to xanthatine. The structures are elucidated mainly by spectroscopic methods and by some chemical transformations. The chemotaxonomic aspects of these findings are discussed briefly.

Four samples of Ligularia virgaurea collected in China afforded three new eremophilane sesquiterpenoids, one new norsesquiterpenoid, and two new dinorsesquiterpenoids as well as 28 known compounds. All the four samples belonged to the ligularol type (L type), one of the five chemotypes we have described for this species. The configuration of the previously reported eremophila-7(11),9-dien-12,8-olide is revised to be H-8 alpha. The absolute configuration of ethyl 8-oxoeremophila-7(11),9-dien-12-o...

From the roots of Ligularia cymbulifera collected in Yunnan Province, China, two new eremophilane-type sesquiterpenoids (1 and 2) together with ten known compounds (3-12) were obtained through the precise chemical component elucidation. The structure determination was mainly carried out with 1D and 2D NMR data.
