Dihydrochalcones and flavonolignans from Iryanthera lancifolia
MetadataShow full item record
An extract from the pericarps of I. lancifolia afforded two dihydrochalcones (1 and 2) and two flavonolignans (3 and 4), with compounds 2-4 being of novel structure. The antioxidant activities of compounds 1-4 were evaluated through the measurement of malondialdehyde production, and Q(1/2) (concentration necessary far 50% inhibition of autoxidation) data were calculated. The Q(1/2) values obtained for 1-4 and the standard compounds a-tocopherol and quercetin were 6.9, 4.7, 5.5, 4.8, 12.1, and 7.6 mu g/mL, respectively.
