Antioxidant phenolic glucosides from Gentiana piasezkii.J Asian Nat Prod Res. 2006 Jul-Aug; 8(5):391-6.JA
An extract of Gentiana piasezkii afforded a new arbutin derivative 6'-O-vanilloylarbutin (1) and a new flavone-C-glucoside 7-O-feruloylorientin (2), together with four known flavonoids lutonarin (3), saponarin (4), isoorient (5) and luteolin (6). Their structures were established based on spectroscopic methods including 2D NMR (COSY and gHMBC) techniques. Compounds 1, 2, 5 and 6 were evaluated for the antioxidant activity in the 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay system.
