[Dihydroflavonol glycosides and flavan-3-ols from Bauhinia aurea].Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi. 2007 May; 32(9):815-8.ZZ
To study the chemical constituents of Bauhinia aurea.
The compounds were isolated by column chromatography over silica gel, reversed-phase RP-18, and Sephadex LH -20. MS and NMR spectroscopic methods were used to determine structures of purified compounds.
Eight compounds were isolated from the ethyl acetate soluble fraction of the ethanolic extract and their structures were elucidated as isoengeletin (1), astilbin (2), neoastilbin (3), isoastilbin (4), neoisoastilbin (5), (+)-catechin (6), (-)-epicatechin (7) and (-)-epicatechin 3-O-gallate (8).
Five compounds were isolated from this genus for the first time except for 2, 6 and 8.
