Prenylated chalcones, flavone and other constituents of the twigs of Dorstenia angusticornis and Dorstenia barteri var. subtriangularis.Phytochemistry. 2005 Mar; 66(6):687-92.P
The twigs of Dorstenia angusticornis and Dorstenia barteri var. subtriangularis yielded 16 compounds. Two novel diprenylated chalcones: 3,5'-di-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut-3-enyl)-4,2',4'-trihydroxychalcone, 3, 4-(2,2-dimethylpyrano)-3'-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut-3-enyl)-2',4'-dihydroxychalcone and the known stipulin were isolated from both species. 3-(2-Hydroxy-3-methylbut-3-enyl)-5'-(3,3-dimethylallyl)-4,2',4'-trihydroxychalcone and the known compounds: 4-hydroxylonchocarpin, kanzonol B, bartericins A, B, C and 3'-(2-hydroxy -3-methylbut-3-enyl)-4,2',4'-trihydroxychalcone were isolated from D. barteri while the known compounds: gancaonin Q, paratocarpins C, F, and lupeol were obtained from Dorstenia angusticornis. beta-Sitosterol and its beta-d-glucopyranoside were isolated from both species. Structures of these secondary metabolites were established using spectroscopic analysis, especially, NMR spectra in conjunction with 2D experiments, COSY, HMQC and HMBC.
