[Studies on the chemical constituents of Chinese herb Melastoma dodecandrum].Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi. 2003 May; 28(5):429-31.ZZ
To investigate the chemical constituents of Chinese herb Melastoma dodecandrum.
The chemical constituents were isolated by solvent extraction and chromatography. Their structure were identified on the basis of physic-chemical constants and specral data.
Five compounds were isolated and identified as hexacosanoic acid (I), quercetin(II), avicularin(III), gallic acid (IV), kaempferol(V).
The above-mentioned compounds were separated from the plant for the first time.
